Connecting Scotland are Sandy Brunton, Bronagh Gallagher, Gordon Carmichael, Pamela Galbraith, and Andy Lippok. We are experienced facilitators, system thinkers, coaches, practitioners, each coming from and with diverse experiences and skills. We work with a global network of friends and colleagues to deliver customised training, strategic work and personal coaching in a wide variety of settings. We all live in Scotland, and we work throughout Scotland virtually and in person.
Sandy was born and brought up on the Isle of Mull and trained as a boat builder. He and his wife returned to Mull in 1986, where they reopened the village shop in Fionnphort and raised a family of three. After 25 busy years, they sold the shop in 2011. Sandy was and continues to be completely immersed in community life and is involved in numerous projects and groups on and off the island. He is convenor of Mull and Iona Community Trust and chair of Development Trust Association Scotland. Since selling the shop, he has committed his time to working with community groups, social enterprises and other organisations around the country.
