Trustees & Staff

The Meeting Room is managed by a small team of four trustees - Paul Adair, Harriet Edgley, Richard Furze and Fran Kane. Each of us has our own areas of focus and expertise, and we compliment each other very well in what we bring to the charity.


Our two staff, Lisa and Gayle, are at the heart of all that we do at The Meeting Room.  Lisa is our Head of Client Support and is very ably assisted by Gayle.  They are very experienced in dealing with and supporting our clients, and always just seem to know what to do.
