Membership Development Manager

Louise Henderson

Louise manages a small team responsible for attracting and retaining volunteers and helping Scottish guiding units to grow and thrive.

A former university researcher, Louise holds a PhD in historical geography and feeds her interest with documentaries, books, museums and galleries.

Louise says:

I feel very lucky to be in a job that challenges and inspires me.

I get to work closely with a great team of staff and volunteers who share a passion for helping girls and young women develop to their full potential.

She adds:

My favourite Girlguiding memory is boiling an egg on a camping stove in Edinburgh Castle as a Brownie.

We had to come up with an unusual place to boil an egg for a competition and our Six chose a volcano – sadly we had to settle for an extinct one!
