Shiona joined the Board of Trustees in Autumn 2023. Shiona is an experienced organisational leader and communications professional with over 20 years’ experience in different public and private sector organisations of varying sizes and is the Board lead for communications. Shiona has been a member of four Executive Boards and led teams and national campaigns to educate and inspire a range of audiences about an organisation’s purpose and priorities and has designed strategies and led teams to help organisations gain increased brand awareness and trust externally and employee engagement internally.

Shiona became captivated by AVUK's mission during a leadership strategy day in which AVUK invites senior leaders from across the public and private sector to learn and advise on the Charity's strategy and brings her experience of reputational risk to AVUK's Finance and Risk Committee.
