As Head of Partnerships for the Alacrity Foundation (UK) Caroline is responsible for developing strategic relationships with key stakeholders and forging new cross-sector partnerships that enhance the Alacrity profile and programme offering.

Prior to taking up her position with the Alacrity Foundation, Caroline was CEO of Be The Spark, a movement in Wales designed to bring together innovation and entrepreneurship in a more visible, simple, connected way.
