Meet Avril Draper, Project Support Officer at GBSLEP

Tell us about your job, and what your current focus is.

I work in the PMO and my current focus is year end PMR’s and looking closely at our processes and procedures

What are you most proud of achieving at the LEP?

I joined the LEP in the week before lock down started, I am most proud of the way the LEP has managed to continue working and the way the team I am in has helped me understand my role.

What upcoming event or project in the region are you most looking forward to?

I think the Symphony Hall extension is really exciting and it will be nice to book tickets for there knowing that I have been a small part of it.

What made you want to move to the region, or what made you stay?

I have really enjoyed seeing the changes in Birmingham when I go, moving here has made me a part of this which is exciting.

What would be your “specialist subject” on Mastermind?

Probable Elton John, I am a really big fan and bought my first album when I was 6 years old.

If you were stuck in a lift with two people, who would you want them to be?

Peter Kay as he is really funny and then someone really clever like Brian Cox so I could ask him random questions

Describe life at the LEP in one word.
