Our Ambassadors

Milton Keynes College Ambassadors 2016

We are honoured to award the following ambassadors for their continued support and contribution to the success of the College.

Jean Gowin - Jeanius Consulting
Jean Gowin


Jean has recently become a governor on our Board and this demonstrates her personal commitment to the success of the college and her involvement in the skills agenda for the city, and indeed our region through her role on the board of SEMLEP.  She is also a board member of the Business Leaders Partnership and via her business has supported our students and the College as an organisation as well as being a great personal advocate and support to our teams in Business Engagement, Offender Learning and Marketing.


Laurence Coen - Glorious DayLaurence Coen


Laurence has worked incredibly hard alongside the Business and Leadership Centre team to develop his Inadvertent Saboteur programmes for the local market on a not-for-profit basis with his own company Glorious Day.  With the ambitious vision of driving the economy of the city as a whole, we now work in partnership to deliver the programme to both large organisations and groups of start-up businesses and he has personally been a great driving force and advocate of the College to enable this.


Darren Thomson - Movey Video MarketingDarren Thomson   Darren has been the driving force behind the Movey Academy at the College – a partnership designed to provide students with live work experience of real customers under his guidance and leadership.  His experience as a teacher has equipped him perfectly to cope with the difficulties of merging these two worlds in this way.  He is constantly on the look out for ways to support the college in the community and his role in the MK TechEx has provided us with other opportunities too.  We thanks Darren for his support in establishing this from scratch and for his advocacy for the College with other businesses.

Jan Flawn CBE - PJ CareJan Flawn   Jan’s role in Milton Keynes is widely recognised and understood already and she not only founded her own successful business but supports others via her role on the Business Leaders Group, however, her support of the college is perhaps less well known.  Not only is she a regular at this event, but her support for the development of skills in the health sector and her work with the College in this area has been incredibly helpful.  She also brought us into the production of the first ever Women Leaders Awards in Milton Keynes, and launched this at our event within the College to celebrate International Women's Day last year.  Jan’s advocacy of the college is greatly appreciated.
