The Board of Trustees are thrilled to welcome Laura Morrison onto the Board. Laura has extensive business experience and is already helping us move forward a very exciting business partnership programme. Laura recently named Steel Bones as her Business Charity of the Year and the team have already been hard at work with naming an amputee knitted friend which we commissioned. We are very excited to have Laura on board. Here’s a little information on Laura to fully welcome and introduce her tot he Steel Bones Family…
Laura has a long career in sales & marketing, culminating as a Board Director of a large outsourcing company. However, having spotted a gap in the market, and wanting to have a better life/work balance, in 2011 Laura established ‘Your Telemarketing’ to help SME businesses grow through intelligently performed telemarketing as part of an overall sound marketing strategy. Passionate about helping small businesses and a driver behind women entrepreneurs, Laura speaks at events to encourage small business owners and females in particular.
Laura is married with 2 children and is fervent about the importance of a good family life. This initially led her to support NSPCC through her various charitable activities which have included running the London Marathon and 5k mud runs. Following a family trauma, the charity of choice changed to CLIC Sargent which Laura and her family supported for over 3 years, involving the business in fundraising days such as wearing wigs to work. Early in 2018 Laura decided that Your Telemarketing’s chosen charity would be Steel Bones. Having met Emma through various events, Laura was drawn by her passion and energy in creating the charity, liked the fact that it is 100% run by volunteers, plus felt that she could add some direct benefit by utilising her background in sales & marketing to move the charity forward.
Laura said “when Emma spoke to me about their plans, I was immediately able to offer some sound advice to help deliver better results. This led me to want to be move involved, and I was delighted and overwhelmed to be invited onto the board of trustees.” Your Telemarketing is co-sponsoring the next print of the children’s books with Tony Strowger Jewellers, as well as promoting the business sponsorship programme through the telemarketing team. “We’ll also run some additional fundraising events, such as ‘Name the Steel Bones doll’ and my daughter, Matilda, is already talking about a fund-raising hair cut for Steel Bones” commented Laura.
Great to have you on Board, Laura, thank you and welcome !
