Me in a minute

If you have the courage to want to try and broaden your skills and knowledge, then the firm is extremely supportive

Once I realised that a career in professional sports was not going to happen, I was lucky to find that marketing and communication was the next best thing! Having worked in large commercial organisations it was somewhat of an initial culture shock to work in a partnership structure. Once I got the hang of it, I actually found that it suited my personality.

My role is very varied and dealing with offices across Europe, Asia Pacific and the US certainly raises interesting cultural challenges when seeking to build a single international brand. As the saying goes, experience is a hard teacher, because she gives the test first and the lesson afterwards.
