BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Alastair’s interest in setting up an organisation suitable for community investment in renewable energy stemmed from the 2019 ‘Energising Communities’ conference held in Moray.
Anne Skene has enjoyed a full career as a teacher and manager of provision for children with Additional Support Needs. For 20 years she ran her own education business which provided consultancy, instruction and teacher training both in Scotland and internationally.

She has recently been a Moray Councillor for the Forres Ward with responsibility for chairing the Children and Young People’s Services Committee and is presently Chair of the Findhorn and Kinloss Community Council. She is very involved with building and developing a school centre in western Kenya.

This led to a number of exciting community development and leadership roles in both the third and the public sector, culminating in his current role on the Leadership Team of tsiMORAY. Fabio is a firm believer in the value of peer-led learning and non-directive leadership; he is never happier than when facilitating collaborative working and learning.
