Fleur Mulligan has been awarded Advance Ashburton Community Foundation’s first leader scholarship award.
The scholarship was funded through the foundation’s first breakfast fundraiser with keynote speaker Sir Stephen Tindall at the newly established EA Networks Centre pavilion at Trotts Garden.
The scholarship was open to anyone over 25 looking to enhance their leadership skills.
After leaving university with degrees in law and art history, Miss Mulligan worked in central and local government (Ashburton council) and is now in banking.
The Advance Ashburton appointing committee was impressed by Fleur and her ambition to “enhance my governance skills to be a credible leader, able to represent those of my age, stage and gender in decision making strategy”.
