What’s something that has surprised you about your chosen career path?

I’m surprised that I have ended up where I am given where I started. No grand plan – I just chose jobs that interested me. When I left University, I trained as an accountant, taught English as a foreign language, been COO of a 3D Printing software company, worked in strategy for a large mobile operator amongst other things, and I guess the variety has enabled me to do the job I do now.

Your top 3 favourite resources?

LinkedIn, Miro and the rest of the team! LinkedIn is such a great source of information on almost everything and everyone. Miro is a relatively new one for me – I’m still learning how to use it effectively but makes collaborative working so much easier in the age of online meetings. Our team has such a diverse skills base, there is always someone to help when I get stumped on helping a client.

Any top tips for managing multiple tasks and tight deadlines?

Don’t Panic. Prioritise and communicate. If there is bad news to give, give it early!

What are three things still left on your bucket list?

Macchu Picchu, Yosemite and Angkor Wat
