Social Enterprise Consultant
After 20 years working in regeneration for various public bodies, Chris set up as a social enterprise consultant in 2000.
Attracted by the idea of using property to scale up social impact, from 2006 he moved to become a developer of property based cultural and business co-operatives, first as a volunteer and then professionally.
He will be supporting the Bradford One Board on any future community share issue and passing on his experience of developing Unity Works as a music venue. Chris has consulted to over 40 developments, but the three he has played a leading role in (all with community share issues) are:
- Headingley Enterprise & Arts Centre – £1.1m
- Unity Works, Wakefield – £4.5m project
- Roco, Sheffield – £1.5m project
