What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
A full diary of meetings! I have a lot of variety in my role as I engage with many parts of the business, which is great. No two days are the same and problem solving is something enjoy doing. I’m always looking for solutions to challenges thrown up in my daily work life.
What are your biggest professional challenges?
Can I say Salespeople?? 😊 Only joking, what would we do without them!
What advice would you give to your younger self?
Not to worry as much! And remember that your work/life balance is important. I think its really important to be hard working but there is definitely a need to be able to shut off from work in the evening and doing other things you enjoy like walking which I love.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I would love to learn to Ski, it looks amazing! I’ve never been before and the après ski is appealing too 😊. Maybe next year when the world is hopefully back to normal, I might book a skiing trip!
What would be the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
That’s a good question and one that lots of people ask themselves. I think the first thing I would do is go on an extended holiday in the sun. There are so many beautiful places in the world I would love to visit.
