Jamie Sharpley

A Club member for nearly two decades, I chaired the Membership Committee then became an independent Director of the Company, The National Liberal Club Ltd, and was chosen to chair the Board two years later, in 2020. I am determined to do all I can to make the Club even more successful and a place that members really value.

After graduating from London University in Sociology, I joined the NHS management training scheme and went on to run clinical and other services in a number of major teaching and general hospitals, mainly in London. I’ve also worked as a tutor for the healthcare thinktank, The King’s Fund. My Board-level experience has included voluntary (non-executive) directorships in housing, social care and the arts.

For the Liberal Democrats, I was President of the Southeast England region for six years and my wife, Rosie – a former LibDem mayor of Woking and retired nurse – is also a Club member and a constant support in my current role. For relaxation, I am a keen gardener and dog walker – both offer space to ponder Club matters too! (Jamie joined the Club in 2002 and has been a Director since 2018)
