On Wednesday 8th May we held our monthly Adoreum Club Breakfast at Home Grown with guest speaker Mike Penrose.
Mike Penrose has 24 years’ experience working in aid and development as well as risk, crisis and disaster management in more than 60 countries. Mike took over as Executive Director of Unicef UK in May 2016. Prior to this he was CEO of Action Contre La Faim in Paris, and Humanitarian Director at Save the Children International.
Mike shared his extensive experience of crisis and emergency response field work and his insight into operating effectively within these fragile environments. We are in awe of his ongoing support for major humanitarian intervention and the work that Unicef carry out.
The message was clear, in the words of Mike ‘if we can get well-nourished children up until about the age of 3 and then we have a functional education system, the rest will fall into place’.
Thank you as well to all of our guests that attended from the breakfast and the team at Home Grown for serving a delicious spread.
