Vivienne Aitchison – International President
Elected at the International Conference in Perth 2014, to be GB’s International President (2014 – 18). Vivienne Aitchison was previously VP for Europe for eight years and brings a wealth of experience to her new role in Girls’ Brigade.
Vivienne is based near to London in the UK, and works as an educational Consultant. Previously a Primary school head teacher, she is passionate about training and equipping those who work amongst children, and spends her working time mentoring trainee teachers and providing training for head teachers and school governors
Vivienne recently handed on the baton of overall leadership of her local GB group, but continues to enjoy being part of the team as they work amongst girls in her area.
In her opening address as President of Girls’ Brigade Vivienne highlighted a few verses from the Bible as a focus for her sense of what’s to come in GB as we continue to move forward as a mission around the world:
“The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house says the Lord Almighty” Haggai 2:9
She spoke too of how the International leadership team for GB will continue over the next four years to encourage the Fellowships and countries to ‘Grasp the Vision: Live the Mission’ of GB as part of God’s church by being Expectant, Courageous and Empowered to see Girls’ lives transformed and God’s world enriched!
