Keith Madeley, Supporting Yorkshire
Keith has one of the most effective networks in Yorkshire and a high profile in the County of Yorkshire which he uses to promote and support a number of charities and businesses. The organisations he works with receive the benefit of his wealth of experience in the corporate, not-for profit, charity and financial services sectors, and from his ability to quickly identify key issues and objectives and turn them into actionable plans www.mryorkshire.com. His personal achievements include receiving an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list in 2011 for service to the communities of Yorkshire and his appointment as Lay Canon of Ripon Cathedral in 2013 for services to business and education. His most recent accolade in 2018 was being made an Honorary Fellow of Leeds Trinity University, again for services to education and business.
He is also currently promoting a series of bestselling and award winning educational children’s books written by his wife, Chris, and has secured sponsorship and support from both regional and global companies enabling them to communicate effective messages to children.
