Chris Cayley

Chris is a geography graduate from the university of Durham, where he first became interested in sustainability, resource management and the environment.

On graduation he decided to pursue a career in law and joined the City firm Cameron Markby Hewitt (now CMS Cameron McKenna) in 1990 because it had an environmental practice. Chris found that working for the major corporates was not what he had in mind in relation to enviromental law and qualified into the firm's litigation department in 1992, where he worked for nearly four years. He decided to leave the law to become a legal recruiter in 1996.

Chris has had a successful career in legal recruitment, having become a director with the market leading legal recruitment company of the 90's, QD Legal, and then as one of three founding directors of First Counsel, which was set up in 2003. While there Chris led First Counsel's 10:10 efforts which resulted in a 35% reduction in the company's footprint in 2010. He left First Counsel in summer 2012, and has now set up his own recruitment company – Cayley & Co – as well as taking up a role as non-executive director with 10:10.

Chris is excited to be involved with 10:10 and its future progress. He was immediately drawn to it because of its call for very achievable and direct action by individuals to make a difference. He sees this as a very real way to get people more engaged and thinking positively about the issue of climate change and what can be done, which is essential for the issue to increase its place in mainstream thinking.

Chris is married to Fiona and has three children, Catriona, Madeleine and Matthew.

 

Joss Garman

Alex Jelly

Alex JellyAlex is a fundraising consultant. Over the last 15 years she has raised many millions of pounds for a mixed bag of charities close to her heart - including Shelter, Green Alliance, the RSA and CARE International - and consulted to dozens more on strategy, high level fundraising and capital campaigns.

She has been a supporter of 10:10 since its inception, both financially and through providing voluntary fundraising support. She's particularly fired up by renewable energy, especially where it can be locally generated and owned by communities, so 10:10's Solar Schools campaign has always had her weak at the knees.

Her favourite thing about 10:10 is the incredible energy of the organisation and its ability to tell powerful stories in a positive way. Alex is currently living in Devon studying ecology and world changing via an MSc in Holistic Science at Schumacher College.
