Gudrun Evans - Talk Surrey Trustee

I’m Gudrun and I’m delighted to have joined the Board of Trustees for TALK Surrey. I’m passionate about supporting people and organisations to realise their full potential and I hope that my skills and experience will be of value to you. I spent the early part of my career as a nurse, training in Reading and serving with Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps for 8 years.

I then completed a degree at Keele University before moving into the world of Human Resources, which is where I’ve been for 23 years. During that time, I’ve had the privilege of working with FTSE 100 companies, in a variety of roles, and I’ve enjoyed extensive travel. I said ‘goodbye’ to full-time corporate life 18 months ago and set up on my own as a consultant. I love it, mainly because I’ve got more time to do those things that are really important to me, like volunteering. I’m married to Andy; we live in Tilford and enjoy cycling, walking, music, travelling and spending time with family and friends.
