Founder and Development Associate

As our founder, Heather came up with the concept behind Space Unlimited in 2002, after working for nearly 20 years in economic and business development. She loved learning about innovation and change, and particularly about what holds us back - since people are, by nature, creative beings.

Heather saw that more could be done to help people see the value of their own ideas and talents and was struck by research showing that adolescents in particular need space to explore and build confidence in their capacity and skills.

So she decided to start a new social enterprise, connecting the instinctive creativity of teenagers with the need for new thinking in organisations, and led the company from its set up in September 2006 until December 2014.

As an associate, Heather continues to support the team to develop our approach, learn from our work and build our relationships, partnerships and business.
