Hilary Edwards

Vice Chair of the Board of Directors (Trustee)

Hilary joined I Choose Freedom as a trustee in 2021.

She has spent most of her career in the corporate events business, initially as a conference producer and now as a project director overseeing large scale projects such as conferences, exhibitions and brand activations for a number of global clients.  She has worked with the Katie Piper Foundation and Breast Cancer Care, and until recently was a Parish Councillor.

Why did I become a trustee?

"I had come to a point in my life when I wanted to give something back and do something worthwhile. A friend suggested I become a trustee, a thought I shared with Sally [another friend!] – who suggested I should speak to Charlotte.  Having spoken to Charlotte and other members of the board, and watched the C4 Dispatches documentary I was humbled and shocked in equal measure as I had no idea of the huge change victims have to experience just to have a life most of us take for granted.  I hope my life experiences and project management skills will add something to this very extraordinary group of women and the critical work they do."

Her interests include running, yoga, films and travel.
