Dan Richardson, MSc, SENr
I am a Sport and Exercise Nutritionist, on the ‘Sport and Exercise Nutrition’ register, focused on providing an evidence-based, food-first approach to nutrition, bettering performance and health for all-level athletes. I spend most of my time working with professional academy and first grade level athletes, across an array of sports with a shared goal of improving performance and recovery. 



Jane Graham, Director, Hieda
Trained at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, Jane has 32 years of nursing background, 17 of them in trauma and intensive care. Whilst in PICU, she had a number of different roles. Nine years of that included a role as a specialist retrieval nurse (CATS) that entailed travelling around the country to stabilise and bring back critically unstable children. To do this she learned advanced nursing and basic medical skills in resuscitation, all medical conditions, and trauma.

She went on to teach these skills to student nurses, qualified nurses and junior doctors as the Practice educator on intensive care. This role also involved lecturing regularly at South Bank University. She has been a DSL for Safeguarding at an independent boarding school where she was Lead Nurse. She is also an instructor for Qualsafe, an awarding body approved by the HSE. She is currently the director of Hieda and director of health and wellbeing for the BSA Group.
