The Team

 
 

Teresa 'Kitty' Elsmore has a successful background not just in LEGO building, but also administration and support. As Faculty Manager for Queen Margaret University she led the support team for half of their population. Moving into the charitable sector, Teresa acted as both PA to the Thistle Foundation's CEO and secretary to the Board of Trustees - a role central to the Queen's visit in 2012. After joining me in 2014 as a qualified Prince II project manager, Teresa led the delivery of BRICK 2014, which attracted over 47,000 visitors.
