Size of Wales is delighted to welcome Nicola Pulman as its new Director.
Nicola joins us from the Phoenix Project, a 9-year collaborative partnership project between the University of Namibia and Cardiff University related to poverty reduction, health promotion and environment, where she was a project manager.
Nicola brings a wealth of experience from the international development and NGO sectors. She previously worked and lived in Africa for two decades where she oversaw a wide range of projects and programmes, including conserving endangered areas of community forest in Ghana and working with forest communities in Nigeria on sustainable livelihoods.
Nicola will oversee the day-to-day running of the charity and the implementation of our new five-year strategy which aims to enhance Size of Wales’ impact across our forest and tree growing projects, educational work, and advocacy campaigns.
Upon joining the team, Nicola said:
“I am delighted to be joining the Size of Wales team particularly in 2020 at the start of the ten-year window to act on climate change.
I am particularly looking forward to working with our team here in Wales and our amazing partners based in Africa, Asia and South America who are on the front line of tackling climate change. Working together I believe we can drive real change that will benefit future generations at home and across the world.”
Size of Wales Chair of Trustees, Peter Davies said:
“We are delighted to welcome Nicola as our new director. She brings experience as a leader working on international development and community forest conservation projects, with an understanding as to how small organisations can deliver real change.
The charity has expanded significantly over the last 2 years under the leadership of Elspeth Jones with an exciting and ambitious plan in place for the next phase.
The trustees would like to thank Elspeth for all her outstanding work in increasing the impact of the charity and wish her every success in the future.”
