Andy formed the Transparency Task Force after a meeting he led at Senate House, University of London on 6th May 2015.
The meeting was about the need for the financial services industry to behave in a more trustworthy way and how harnessing the transformational power of transparency can drive the change that is needed.

Head of Operations,
I am very proud to be a part of the Transparency Task Force because I wholeheartedly believe in what we are doing. Consumers of financial services products and services are often confused by all the jargon and they rarely get the information they need to make well-informed decisions. I know that more transparency can help.
I work part-time and my role is to put in place processes and procedures so that we can continue to grow and expand our activities. I particularly enjoy using technology to replace labour-intensive administrative tasks and I can honestly say no two days are the same.
I oversee our events management, take care of the production of the Transparency Times, provide support to the running of our many Special Interest Groups, update the website, am responsible for our social media activity, I run the office and manage all our software and IT.
A crucial part of my role now includes reaching out to individuals and organisations whose objectives align with the overall aims of the Transparency Task Force and therefore might wish to provide us with much-needed financial support.

Head of Outreach,
I’ve got an important part-time job managing our extensive outreach activities. I schedule Andy’s many meetings and telephone appointments, I oversee the continuous expansion of our ever-growing contacts database and I am always being asked to take on more and more responsibility for helping Tina once a process has become a “business as usual” activity. There’s a lot of variety in my work and we’re always looking to do things more efficiently and effectively.
Volunteer: Event Photographer,
I am delighted to be part of the Transparency Task Force team on a voluntary basis, as an event photographer, helping to create records of the TTF symposia so that people who were unable to attend can get the feel for what was said and who was present.
I am a performance coach, visual artist and photographer, composer, musician, singer, writer, active environmentalist and ocean preservation speaker.
I am also Founder and Director of the Antara Project which focuses on creativity, ecology, communication and education.
I am an Ambassador of the Transparency Task Force and my interest in the Transparency Task Force stems from my belief that the finance sector as the backbone of our economy and our society has a great responsibility in incorporating into its activity the essential idea of caring for the life and protection of our planet. This means also emphasising information, transparent communication and education.
