Much missed member of our board whose dedication and energy was fundamental in shaping Trellis.
Carol Anderson was an Honours Graduate from the University of Aberdeen and had spent her career as a communications professional in fundraising, PR and marketing. Her focus had always been to grow business and increase revenues. Roles with Oxfam and Help the Aged and The Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust involved creative and innovative approaches to finding new sources of income. For the last 30 years through her own consultancy The Business she had delivered a wide range of PR and marketing campaigns to a wide range of clients, including government agencies, economic development organisations, care agencies, Scandinavian window manufacturers and most recently as Director of Barbados Celtic Festival she had fused the cultures from Scotland and the Celtic countries with a Caribbean island steeped in Scottish history. This activity has grown the tourist market to Barbados from Europe and North America through music and food. She had also recently qualified in Horticulture through the Royal Horticultural Society, studying at Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh augmenting her passion for gardening.
