Abbie Campbell

Corporate and Community Fundraiser, Northamptonshire Health Charity

I’m a 29-year-old from Northampton. I graduated from the University of Northampton in 2019 with a BA Hons in Event Management and subsequently went on to work as an Event and Marketing Coordinator for The British Medical Ultrasound Society. I currently work for Northamptonshire Health Charity as a Corporate and Community fundraiser, and I have background of experience within the hospitality and health sector.

I’ve had moments over the years where I have struggled with getting myself out there and meeting new likeminded people and have found the next generation chamber to be an incredible support for this. I love knowing that I am going to be a part of creating a platform for the next generation! In my spare time I enjoy a pub quiz, bingo or watching a good series! I’m a big animal lover and I have 2 pet Rabbits which I talk about a lot.

Alicia Fergusson

Personal Assistant to Chief Executive and Assistant Chief Executive, West Northamptonshire Council

I am 21 years old, born and bred in Northampton and I have been working in local authorities in Northamptonshire since March 2020, where I began studying an apprenticeship in Business Admin. After completing my apprenticeship, I started working at West Northamptonshire Council in January 2022 as Personal Assistant to the Chief Executive and Assistant Chief Executive. My job is often fast paced and can involve juggling lots of different things at once but it is also be very rewarding and I like making new connections and speaking to a range of different people, especially when it benefits the local area and it’s residents.

I really enjoy networking and have been actively leading on my organisations internal Early Careers Staff Network which has been a great success and I hope to use some of my experiences to support the Next Gen Chamber. I am really looking forward to being a part of the Next Gen Committee and excited to continue meeting other likeminded young people in the network and helping to develop the CPD program.

When I’m not in the office, I love to listen to live music and am always up for gigs and festivals. I’m looking to spend the next few years travelling and visiting different music venues around the world!

Molly Feugard

I started my career completing a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship and working as a Marketing Executive for a number of years before joining the Chamber in 2021. I started my time at the Chamber as the Training Executive before moving into the role of Digital Marketing Executive.

During my time at the Chamber some of my highlights include working on projects such as redesigning our Chamber Inbusiness magazine, introducing our new brand for the Northamptonshire Business Exhibition, continually growing our MK Business Showcase Events, and working on the prestigious Northamptonshire Business Awards. I can’t wait to bring some of these elements to the Next Generation Chamber in the future!
