A passion for places
Coral is a Planner by profession and a Fellow of Institute of Place Management. This becomes ever more relevant as quality of place affects quality of life, and a city's ability to attract, retain and connect high skilled talent - fostering productivity and innovation. She has a passion for the people, and increasingly the technology, that makes cities buzz, and the need to create environments and systems in which people and business can thrive.
People, Skills & Talent
The ability to grow, attract and retain talent and skills for a modern economy is the key determinant of city success and prosperity. Through her work with educators and charities, and as Head of Talent and Skills for TechNorth, Coral and Capital Relations have become leading experts in developing solutions to the digital talent challenge, by building bridges between business, educators and government.
