Neil Blake - Patron

Neil graduated with a degree in Mathematics from York University in the mid-1970s. He spent the next six years teaching English as a foreign language in Algeria, Japan and the UK, before basing himself in Edinburgh and working in computer systems consultancy. In 1990 he joined the Bank of Scotland where he was to undertake a number of senior roles in Credit Risk Management, Product Management, and Policy and Planning. In 2002 he began working with Sainsbury's Bank in the capacity of Head of Products and went on to become Head of Risk Projects.
After taking (a very) early retirement in 2009, Neil joined a venture philanthropy fund, Inspiring Scotland, as a Performance Advisor. In 2013, Neil spent a year volunteering in Tanzania. Three months of this was working with EdUKaid, an experience he found extremely fulfilling. Since his return to the U.K., Neil has found himself working as a Performance Advisor for Inspiring Scotland again.
Neil and Barbara returned to Tanzania on holiday in September 2015 and visited the EdUKaid office in Mikindani together with a number of the outlying schools.

Neil Blake Performance Advisor
Neil joined Inspiring Scotland as Performance Advisor in 2009, channelling his 20 years' experience in a variety of management roles with Bank of Scotland and Sainsbury's Bank.
He has worked across a number of Inspiring Scotland's funds, assessing applications for funding and working closely with the funded charities. He has built a wide range of contacts within the organisations he has worked with as well as with officers in the Scottish Government.
In 2013, Neil and his wife spent a year volunteering in south Tanzania, running a charity which operated a hotel as a social enterprise and working with another charity to provide pre-primary education. The educational charity asked Neil to become a patron, a position he is honoured to hold, alongside his fellow patrons which include Ralph Fiennes and Glenys Kinnock.
In 2014, Neil was delighted to be able to return to work as a Performance Advisor with Inspiring Scotland, and since then has worked in roles which have extended into consultancy support as well as performance advice.
Neil holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of York and an MBA from the University of Edinburgh and has taught English as a foreign language in Algeria, Japan and the UK.
In his spare time, Neil likes to think of himself as being active, and has recently taken up Scottish country dancing to complement his badminton, golf and cycling.
