CEO of Living Well Consortium
Graham Beaumont has been the CEO of Living Well Consortium since April 2018. Prior to this he was CEO of Health Exchange CIC (one of our member organisations).
Graham has a vibrant CV with a background in psychology, education and work in economic regeneration in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands.
He is committed to partnership working and building the strengths of all partners. Graham is passionate about change and improving the mental health and wellbeing of all communities we serve. These are the qualities he brings to the consortium.
Graham is constantly looking to grow and change the consortium as a business: “The consortium represents a collection of the best providers of mental health and wellbeing support in the West Midlands and our role is to take this capability into a wider marketplace, through collaboration and co-learning.
This would worry some corporate companies but for me it means that we are constantly doing something different and growing as an enterprise”.
Growth is definitely a motivating factor for Graham but “money doesn’t get me out of bed in the morning” he says – it is his social mission to “help to change the landscape for mental health and wellbeing” that drives him forward.
Quality of services is also highly important to Graham: “One of the best ways to improve a business such as the consortium is to appoint the best people in the core and, through them, support businesses, who want to drive change forward, to be the best”.
Graham is recognised as a visionary thinker, with an excellent track record in strategic planning and policy implementation.
Prior to his previous CEO role with Health Exchange he ran a Social Enterprise business support organisation and previously worked for 25 years, leading and managing many key areas of business development, economic regeneration, social inclusion and lifelong learning in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
