Poppy joined Baxendale from a background in social enterprise, social value strategy and impact measurement. She holds an MSc in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship from the London School of Economics and prior to turning to healthcare worked for a Social Impact Consultancy, working with clients from the private, public and VCSE sector.

She has worked on the business case for a mental health organisation, including calculating a return-on-investment framework; has led on the financial evaluation of multiple start-up ventures looking to innovate the healthcare space, helping to inform investment decisions; and supported an NHS Trust to reduce their overspend by improving efficiency.
