Headliners (UK) Chief Executive Officer Ali Talbot has announced that she is stepping down from her role with the charity.

Ali joined the charity in April 2020 and has overseen the charity through the months of the pandemic supporting the team and the Board of Trustees to build a new strategy for 2022-2025.

Ali said "It has been a honour to work for such a great charity with some brilliant staff and Trustees and I wish the charity well for the future as it embarks on its new strategy".

Jon Hudson, Chair of Headliners (UK) Board of Trustees said: "Ali successfully steered the organisation though a period of change, not least the impacts of the pandemic on our operations. But we have emerged as a stronger and more resilient charity, better able to achieve our vision and mission."

Ali will leave the charity later in the summer and she will move to a new Chief Executive Officer role with a charity closer to her home.
