My first fitbit week

School Business Management isn’t something that you can do on your own. We all need support, information, networking and friendship. This blog site has evolved into something that I want to share and extend to other School Business Managers around the world. 


We are all WorkingSBM.

I’ve been a School Business Manager in the Secondary sector for 17 years and love my job  but about three years ago my well-being took a knock and I felt alone. It wasn’t the first time, but it hit me hard and I needed to do something about it. I started writing about my experience in a blog.


Suddenly I wasn’t alone.


Since then, I have made so many new friends and new doors of opportunity have opened up. I am a regular poster on #SBLTwitter, I have written for national and international publications, I have presented workshops, I have become an ISBL Fellow, I have become accredited as a School Resource Management Adviser (SRMA) and I am keen to support the SBM whenever I can with this website and Ask Anna.


Anything is possible in this profession, if you’ve got the resilience, the willingness to keep learning and the support you need.

I don’t pretend to know it all but if you’ve got a problem or a question…if your well-being is at rock bottom…if you would just like to know more about being an SBM or an SRMA…if you would like to write a guest blog…please get in touch. 


If I can’t help, I bet I know someone who can.
