Libby Herbert: Chief Executive

Libby joined the team in June 2017 bringing with her a wealth of experience encompassing everything from hospitality and event management to customer services, internal communications, training, people development and relationship management. We are lucky that Libby has such a comprehensive ‘toolkit’ of skills to draw upon. As our chief executive,  her main role is to ensure that we represent the interests of ostomates in everything that we do. This includes promoting our work as widely as possible and ensuring that our office team, volunteers and trustees are supported in the delivery of all our services. Libby also takes the lead in our strategic planning and makes sure that, as a charity, we implement our campaigns and projects successfully. This all makes for a busy schedule, but Libby prefers this and finds being at Colostomy UK rewarding. As she says, it means she gets to meet lots of amazing people and hear about their journeys through life.

Indeed, Libby finds journeys of all kinds inspiring. Having lived in Kenya, Australia and Portugal she has never lost the travel bug, particularly if the destination involves some sunshine. Rainy days she spends cooking, swimming and doing yoga.
