Chief Executive of Lifelites
A slightly older graduate with an interest in the possiblities technology presents to improve business and life in general, Simone was catapulted into a fundraising career thanks to a major disability charity. Cutting her fundraising teeth in sponsored events and radio appeals, she continued into a successful seven year stint with a cancer charity as Regional Events Manager for London and the South East. Following on to a small education charity with technology at its heart, Lifelites was a natural next step. Now after nearly 25 years in the business she claims: "I didn't see this career coming but now I can't imagine what else I would've done. And making terminally ill children smile really does have to be the best job in the world."
