My name is Julian. I’ve been the CEO of Lankelly Chase since 2011. My role is to provide leadership of the organisation and accountability to our board of trustees. I bring together several priorities in my work: our mission, values and strategy, our governance model, external influence, our investment approach and our commitment to climate, equity and justice.
What attracted you to LC?
Most funding organisations keep people stuck in business as usual. LC has the independence, flexibility and longevity of a wealthy organisation, which means we can support a wide network of people to go deep into the causes of social injustice, and come up with strategies and actions that will shift things.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about creating spaces that allow people to connect with each other and with what it would take to bring about fundamental change. Increasingly I am passionate about processes that can redistribute power to people who have been excluded from decision making.
What are you good at?
Joining up the dots, being curious, perseverance.
