Gail Porter


I am currently a Board Member of Intact and Chair of the Business Development Group, both of which I really enjoy. Intact and Dobcroft are two fabulous assets for the local area which I am keen to support. In a voluntary capacity I am also the chair of Trustees for the charity Strong Young Minds which works to support and improve children’s mental health. I am also a qualified executive coach and deliver leadership development programmes to support women in their leadership roles.

In my ‘day job’ I work for Liverpool City Council Children’s Services as a Programme Director – it keeps me busy! Prior to my work in Local Government I worked as a senior civil servant across a range of departments, latterly as the Home Office Regional Director within Government Office North West.

Outside of work I enjoy cycling, yoga, gardening and cooking ( I have to exercise to make up for all the cake I make and eat……….). I try to ‘rope’ my husband and children into these hobbies with varying degrees of success.
