Not many people know
I studied and was involved in musical theatre for many years and gained a distinction in my singing exams.
If there is one thing I’ve learnt from being in business it is…
Be proactive, not reactive. Forward planning and managing your time is key to reaching your potential.
When I’m not at work you’ll find me…
Working in my garden or kicking a punch bag. I hate sitting still and learned over many years in complex management positions that fun exercise, that doesn’t feel like a chore, is essential to de-stress and maintain well-being.
