About Mark Topley FICRS, BEd (Hons)

My background as CEO of the international development organisation Bridge2Aid entailed strategic international leadership and development, with fundraising based in the UK and Australia and operations based in the UK, Tanzania and across East Africa.

During my tenure, we successfully developed corporate partnership programs with multinationals and major East African companies such as GSK, Barrick Gold/Acacia Mining, Songas (Globeleq), Anglo-Gold Ashanti and others.  We also established 4-way partnerships between the corporate, volunteering, government and NGO sectors – public/private partnerships with the Tanzanian & Rwandan Government Ministry of Health and Foreign affairs.

Purpose Driven Business’ current client base includes large Multi-site Academy Trusts, global dental equipment manufacturers and PE funded dental groups.
