Mind Your P’s – Fanchea Kelly, CEO of Blackwood Homes



Fanchea Kelly has been the CEO of Blackwood Homes for 7 years. Their mission is to help customers live independently, serving people all across Scotland by providing state of the art accessible homes that are as beautiful as they are functional. Fanchea tells us about the way she has led their services and supported staff throughout the pandemic, and tells us that she isn’t afraid to ask her employees for help.

We talk about digital literacy and how technology is a legacy at Blackwood Homes. Plus, Fanchea and Caroline chew the fat over their favourite P of all: Prosecco. They discuss their love for fizz and get interrupted by a mischievous cat.
