As Lizzie says “When I was 8, I wanted to be the first woman on Mars – in truth, I kinda still do! From that early age, I loved being part of something with a purpose – a sports team, a brass band, a march. One of 8 kids, nothing makes me happier than bringing people together in an environment where we can learn from each other. That’s led me through community management, sports development, being a tech start-up founder, to becoming a coach and facilitator”
