Tom Arkell initially pursued a career as a professional tennis player with a career high UK ranking inside the top 50. A career stopped short through injury meant Tom went on to complete his BSc in Sports Science and a further MSc in Biomechanics. Upon joining the Ford Motor Company graduate scheme, Tom worked as a project manager on a variety of change programmes focusing on customer facing IT applications. He then moved to Accenture as a Management Consultant, specialising in PMO mobilisation and Agile management across a variety of industries. Tom now currently works at PwC working as a Portfolio and Programme Management Consultant.
Tom has always been fascinated with the charity his grandmother set up and joined the trustee board in early 2016. He is particularly keen to help the Dyslexia Centre expand it's reach whilst playing his part to ensure the Helen Arkell legacy lives on.
