My career

Identifying social and environmental problems and seeking meaningful lasting solutions is a common theme throughout my career history from leading organisations to tackle youth unemployment through to shaping initiatives to tackle health inequalities. I have set up two co-operatives with social aims, and delivered health initiatives that altogether have engaged over 30,000 people.

Building trusted relationships with a breadth of stakeholders is fundamental to my approach. I have workplace experience of local authority, national charity, social enterprise, commercial and voluntary sector organisations.

I also reached the final of the World Pooh Stick Championships in 2008.


Kettlegun: Animal, vegetable or mineral?     

dic desc 2Realising as a teenager the vast potential of the internet and the importance of being identifiable in searches I created the word ‘kettlegun’ as something more unique than my name (Dan Harris).

After applying this word to areas of my work and internet identity for 20 years I finally decided to define the word based on how I’ve been using it throughout its life.
