The BCI has kindly supported my career from being a student member right through to now. It is through this support that I have been afforded opportunity after opportunity to contribute. I have taken each one in the last 10 years to do this and enjoyed every minute. I want the focus of my contribution with this role to be a highly active community member in the thought leadership space and membership development journey. Let's get to work.”
BCI Chair Tim Janes HonFBCI welcomed the election of Luke and said “I am very happy to hear that the BCI volunteer community has elected Luke to the board.
