Our Associates

Bubble Enterprises CIC has built it businesss model on working with ‘like minded’ professional collegues who have a ‘heart’ to contribute to the Health and Wellbeing agenda of ‘society’ at large. We have worked with people who possess specific areas of expertise or demonstrable track record.

The people talked about on this page we think of as our Associates, and we thank them for the contributions they have made to us as individuals and our projects, our programmes and our budding Entrepeneurs over the years.

We would particularly like to thank Dr Louise Pinfold and Sue Dixon, two former directors of our businesses who have moved to the other side of the world or retired.

Their contribution to building the intellectual content and practices that we encapsulate in our ‘iPlaybooks’ is profound. We will forever be in their debt.

Thank you to all the people listed here, we have gained knowledge from every interaction and simply from knowing you.
