Manchester-based digital coaching platform Your FLOCK has announced Social Chain MD Katy Leeson has become its latest board appointment.

Leeson, who has been the MD of Social Chain for five years, will join the board of Your FLOCK mid-September to assist the platform as it prepares for a new stage of product development as a SaaS platform and growth.

She has trialled the Your FLOCK platform with some of the Social Chain teams which led her to join the board, taking the proportion of women on its board to more than 60%.

The platform has been working with a number of enterprises to pilot and trial its product and has a waiting list of more than 100 businesses seeking to take part in the next round of its product development. Its clients include AO.com, Virgin Money, and BBC Children in Need.

Leeson said: “Using Your FLOCK, and hiring the right people, we have learnt more and more about our company culture and the needs of our team. Not about the marketing values but the real values of the people and our business.

‘’This learning is the real deal of the company culture and is key for the employee experience at Social Chain, be that working from home or in the office. It’s all about the skills you can give your people as an employer. Not just skills for the job but skills for life, as happy people will create the best work for clients.’’

Founding Board member, Sandy Lindsay MBE, added: ‘’The founding partners, Dan Sodergren and Michal Wisniewski, have carefully and very impressively crafted a Board which literally spans the full gamut of knowledge and expertise we now need as we move into the next exciting phase of development and growth. I’ve learned so much already from all of the longer standing exec and new Board members and Katy’s appointment is another ‘win’ for the business, especially as she has been hands on trialling the product in one of our leading target sectors: ‘fast growing enterprises’, so can give us some real insight.’’
