Louise

Business Development

Louise is responsible for coming up with new and exciting events at Go Wild and making them happen.

Lou began her Forest School journey as a Go Wild volunteer just when Go Wild started. She spent a summer up to her knees in mud helping to restore a neglected hazel coppice.

Straight out of University Lou put her Fine Art degree to use working at the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol, helping to coordination, curate and develop exhibitions with local, national and international artists in the Exhibition and Collections team.

In more recent years Lou was Business Engagement Manager at Working Knowledge, a social enterprise that exists to open the eyes of business to the young talent available locally and, most recently, for the Soil Association in their fundraising team-championing healthy and sustainable food, farming and land use.

When she's not Go Wilding she loves cooking, gardening and knitting and is a dab hand with a camera.
