Marie Hopkins is the Managing Director at MNH Leadership Solutions Ltd., a consultancy offering comprehensive services to healthcare and social care industry professionals across the UK. With over 33 years of experience, Marie is an expert in social care and health business strategy and management solutions, and has seen her business grow to a national level.
After completing a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Social Policy and Law at the University of York, Marie went on to earn a Master of Business Administration (with Distinction) from the University of Hull. She has also garnered over 16 years of experience at Board level, and is widely sought after for her ability to work within regulatory boundaries while growing national social care and health businesses.
Prior to founding MNH Leadership Solutions, Marie spent a decade on the Board of Directors for the Social Care Association, a protagonist for the regulation of care and professionalizing the social care workforce. During 2002/3 Marie was elected the National President of the Social Care Association and was a member of the Parliamentary Committee, and chaired or spoke at a number of Department of Health conferences
One of Marie’s main achievements was working for 14 months as a member for the turnaround team with the private healthcare provider, Castlebeck. This occurred following the airing of the BBC Panorama documentary that uncovered serious and criminal abuse of some of the most vulnerable people being care for in their hospital, Winterbourne View. The experience left Marie eager to work with other female professionals and share the considerable knowledge she has to offer.
Marie always wanted to pursue a career where she could help others, and is grateful that she can see the results she has sought to help the lives and treatment of hospital inpatients, as well as adults and children across a range of health and social care service provisions located across the four UK countries.
Based in Horbury, West Yorkshire, England, Marie finds great reward in helping people reach their goals. In her spare time volunteers as a Trustee, with a local housing association, working to combat homelessness and improve community care.
