Chair of Stockroom board, Mark Powell says -

"We're both lucky & grateful Deborah has made space for Stockroom in her busy schedule. Her experience & insight of leading diverse, award-winning writers rooms will be essential in our evolution from the previous business model to our current artist-centred approach.
