BeyondMe is a growing movement in which professionals, businesses and charities join together to make a meaningful impact on the world beyond them. BeyondMe motivates and mobilises professionals – mainly millennials - to form teams in their businesses and pool their resources to help tackle charity projects on BeyondMe’s portfolio.
Since launching in 2011, BeyondMe has created over 140 teams across 18 businesses donating over £230,000 with12,000 hours of business skills pledged to the social sector. It has established five corporate partnerships with Allen & Overy, Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC. These leading organisations offer BeyondMe to their staff because they recognise that it complements their talent development and corporate responsibility initiatives.
Prospectus was mandated to lead the search for two board members: a Treasurer with financial expertise and a Lay Trustee with experience in one or more of the following areas – human resources, talent development, employee engagement, citizenship or social leadership.
Prospectus was successful in appointing three candidates: a Treasurer – Aman Bahel, Director at Deutsche Bank in Global Transaction Banking, and two Lay Trustees – Heather Morgan, Director of People and Planning at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Shefaly Yogendra, a risk and strategy consultant.
Kawika Solidum, Chief Executive, BeyondMe commented: “An organisation’s team and trustees are critical in supporting its future growth and enabling it to propel its mission further. Prospectus helped BeyondMe identify high-calibre candidates and encouraged them to apply to join our Board. The Prospectus team immersed themselves in understanding BeyondMe and our strategic objectives, as well as our value and personality. The shortlist of applicants was impressive and we are proud of the expertise and backgrounds our three new trustees bring to our mission. I would absolutely recommend Prospectus to any charity looking to evolve their governance.”
