Clinical Advisory Board Member

Ian Nightingale

Trustee

Much of my working life has been spent in Human Resources and for over 20 years as HR Director of Alstom Power. In 2010 I left mainstream HR and set up a Landscaping business (as this had for a long time been a major interest of mine).  Alongside this I set up a Coaching and Mentoring business,  offering guidance in career management and small business development. As a Fellow of the CIPD, I also provide (for free) support to young people aged between 19 & 24 in job-seeking skills. Early in 2018 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer at the age of 59 and elected to have a Prostatectomy in November of that year.  As a result, I joined Prostaid in Leicestershire, developing & co-ordinating a “Buddy Scheme”, where guys who are newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment can be paired up with someone who had gone through the process earlier. For a few years I split my time between Leicester & Teignmouth in Devon and in August 2020 I was elected Chairman of Torbay Prostate Support Association (TPSA). This has given me an insight into the common needs of groups in both City & Rural communities as well as the specific challenges living in a rural location presents.
