About Us

Kevin Parkes

Managing Director and Principal Consultant

Dawn started her working life in the office of a wallpaper factory but has worked in the hotel industry, banking, retail, child care and for some years owned her own business selling a whole world of fair trade products and Christian books and resources.

As well as keeping Kevin’s feet on the ground, Dawn’s role in the company is to manage all the back-office activities which keep Jireh Training going: things like keeping the accounts, paying the tax, raising invoices, liaising with suppliers and managing client relationships.  And if that wasn’t enough, in her spare time she’s a voluntary support worker helping families in crisis.
