Bryan Rossi-Anderson's Bio:

Bryan Rossi-Anderson works in Third Sector Management and is a Solutionary.

I have just completed  working  for Beanstalk, a national literacy charity that recruits, vets, trains and supports volunteers to work in primary schools with children who have fallen behind with their reading. Its vision is that all children and young people will have the essential skills they need to grow up and lead successful lives.

I am responsible for directing 'Jack Petchey's "Speak Out" Challenge!'; sharing best practise across their suite of programmes, whilst developing links with state and free schools, utilising its media content (social, static and promotional), ensuring sustainability and increased schools penetration whilst managing a diverse and talented pool of freelancers who deliver the programme.

As I BE Consultancy I work with small businesses, media entrepreneurs and start-ups. In particular BMEs who have problems with business structures; youth training development; locating appropriate funding sources and running apt marketing and publicity campaigns. I have experience at senior & general management level.

I currently sit as a trustee for BSAT multi academy trust and I have sat on the board of Not Another Drop, Brent Borough's anti gun crime initiative. I have been an ambassador for Harlesden & Stonebridge and supported and mentored numerous start-up businesses in north west London.
