Lesley Smith MBE

As Senior Manager for Devon Communities Together and County Secretary for the Devon Association of Local Councils I have many years experience of working with people from Devon’s communities, as well as with strategic partners. With both roles I have taken part in many national and regional events, and worked alongside local people in taking new concepts forward. I am an experienced trainer, and will always work to find ways to bring new information to people in ways they will find accessible and useful to them.

I was awarded the MBE in 2007 for services to local government across the South West – an honour I am very proud of both for myself and the local councils I work with.

I Love Devon because...

All the people I meet and talk to who care so much about their local communities and their beautiful surroundings.
