The British Stammering Association (BSA) is a national organisation which offers support to all whose lives are affected by stammering across Britain. It aims to help people through various services including helplines, information, and resources; bringing people who stammer together both face-to-face and online; raising awareness, and lobbying for change. BSA's overall strategy and direction of its work are guided by its dedicated team of trustees. Leanne Pick, a Director of Purple HR based in Dorset, has been named as the latest trustee to join the nationwide association.
Despite stammering since childhood, Leanne has paved a successful career working as a leading HR Consultant. Leanne first worked as the practice manager for a well-known legal practise before founding Purple HR in 2010. However, whilst establishing herself and Purple HR as one of the South's best HR consultancy, Leanne has consistently campaigned for and supported the BSA.
Leanne Pick represents the BSA as a successful business owner, demonstrating that a stammer does not have to disadvantage those in the business world, and aims to help those who stammer ensure they have the resources available to succeed in their own careers.
"As a person who has stammered since I can remember and been blessed with nothing but support from those around me, I am proud to join the BSA as a Trustee. I hope to bring my experience working within HR across a range of industries to raise awareness of stammering and look for new opportunities for the BSA and its members."
Tim Fell, the Chair of BSA said:
"On behalf of the BSA, I am thrilled to welcome Leanne on board as a trustee. As a successful business owner, Leanne is a great example of how a stammer need not be a barrier to opportunities within work. We look forward to having Leanne's input as we continue to aid people who stammer across the UK."
