Hester Rice is C3’s senior project manager and has been with the organisation since its inception in 2009. Before coming to C3 Hester worked for a political academic publishing house, developing an interest in the impact that social, political and economic constructs have on the way that people live their day-to-day lives. Hester was inspired to work with C3 because of the opportunity it offered to advocate for the social change that is needed to make our world a more healthful place.

Hester’s role:

Hester works across much of C3’s portfolio, overseeing and implementing projects, liaising with partners and coordinating C3’s internal processes. Hester works closely with C3’s monitoring and evaluation officer, particularly around the development of our overarching communications strategy. She has managed high-profile international health events in South Africa, Australia and India, as well as in the UK; overseen the production of numerous reports; and she manages C3’s Workplace Health Movement – a network of over 200 WPH professionals.

How Hester practises what she preaches:

After several failed attempts Hester finally gave up smoking on the eve of her first day at C3. She is a member of the London Publishers Softball League, she runs regularly and sometimes practices yoga in her sitting room. She always tries to walk rather than take public transport and spends weekends finding her way across London on foot, or on a country walk.
