June Burrough is a Social Entrepreneur and Life Coach/Mentor with a passion for social justice, a belief that every human being is remarkable and an ethos of service and welcome. All of her work centres round the purpose of facilitating growth in people and organisations to be the best they can possibly be. June has an MSc in Management Development and Training. She loves her work as a facilitator, coach and mentor. Whether Personal Development, Management Learning, Organizational Growth or Leadership Development, the outcome is to implement new courses of action which maximise potential opportunities for the individual or the organization. It is key to her work that people find their own solutions and actions which best serve their vision and purpose. June is fascinated by the concepts behind Social Enterprise and the idea of a Leader as a Community Builder, making social impact on the wider society of which their organisation is a part. June founded the Pierian Centre CIC in Bristol in 2001, which ran for a decade until its closure in December 2011. During that time she was a National Ambassador for the European Year for Combatting Poverty and Social Exclusion and "incubated" many projects which are still thriving. The Pierian Centre's 'swan song' was being involved in the partnership of organisations which launched Bristol as a City of Sanctuary in June 2011. As co-author of 'The Honesty Pot', June has given presentations focusing on the place of heartfulness and social purpose in creating leaders who build community spirit in their workplaces.
