Mita Desai chats with Alex Swallow about how he became involved in the Young Trustees Movement and why he thinks it's such an important issue.
Alex is The Influence Expert, helping people with their personal branding and influence- and is the author of the book ‘How To Become An Influencer’ (http://theinfluenceexpert.com/).
He set up Young Charity Trustees in 2011 and ran it until it became part of The Young Trustees Movement in 2019. After becoming a young trustee himself he realised how few young people know about this amazing opportunity to give something back, so he started to campaign on the issue. He has been involved in a number of national and international level governance initiatives. He served as the Co-Vice Chair of a charity in North London and is now the Chair of The Suit Works in his new home of Sheffield. He remains a committed supporter for the cause of trying to make charity Boards more diverse.
