Diane Card


Learning and Development Lead Volunteer

How long have you been in Girlguiding?

I have been in Girlguiding since I was 7 and have been involved for over 40 years as a leader.

Describe your journey leading up to your role:

I have had many different roles within Guiding and have enjoyed them all. I have experienced most sections as a section leader, became a trainer over 20 years ago and have had several County and Region roles along the way.

Anything that stands out, proud achievements?

There is nothing that really stands out – just very proud of being part of a fabulous team that is so full of ideas and events that can develop and grow the leaders within Anglia.

What do you enjoy the most in your role?

I love being a unit leader to my brownies and being part of a great team, we have been involved in may things but love taking the girls away on holidays and helping them learn new skills that will help them in later life. I am really proud to be a trainer and enjoy being able to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for guiding with so many other people. As Learning and Development Lead volunteer I really enjoy having the opportunity to create and deliver training within region. Listen to leaders and help them develop their sills and knowledge and be part of lots of innovation within the Region.

What do you enjoy the most about representing your county?

I love having the opportunity to create new and different learning and development opportunities within the Region and seeing them being accepted by the leaders.

Anything else you want to mention:

I couldn’t do this role without the support of the team alongside me and see this as a really joint venture to expand the opportunities within the Region.
