Leading in the Third Sector: eradicating homelessness.
Walking alongside those experiencing homelessness, domestic abuse, and sexual violence, my guest this week is one of the most humble leaders you will meet. Compelled to action at an early age, Frances’ mission to eradicate homelessness has encompassed a career as a volunteer, a therapist, an outreach worker (and even a prankster!), on her path to being the purposeful leader she is today.
Frances Beecher is the Chief Executive of Llamau, Wales leading homeless charity supporting vulnerable women and disenfranchised young people. Do listen in as, determined to make an impact, Frances shares some deeply honest and powerful learning from her career as a third sector leader: including her refusal to settle for anything less than her best, and the impact that has had on those around her.
This episode is for women who feel a deep calling to serve, and want to know how to use power and influence differently in order to feel fulfilled and make a difference.
