Bola Gibson is Head of Community Engagement at TSB Bank where she’s responsible for supporting the establishment of the TSB brand through developing the bank’s community engagement and ethics strategy.
Previously she was Head of Community Engagement at Lloyds Banking Group where she developed and supported a number of their flagship community and sustainability programmes including their Day to Make a Difference volunteering programme and the Community Fund.
Bola worked with Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership to design Lloyds Bank’s Business & Environment training programme which saw over 600 SME and corporate business relationship managers trained in understanding climate change and its effects on business.
One of Bola’s strengths lies in engaging staff to support corporate programmes to get results. Her current programme at TSB harnesses the interests of staff to provide much needed to support to local independent charities, community enterprises and groups.
Her experience spans community, sustainability, change management and operations. She has held positions in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors and brings a broad range of experiences to the table.
