Why I love what I do

I am a closet control freak who loves a plan. With a background in project management I treat every task through this lens, and really enjoy supporting those around me to achieve a successful outcome. No day is the same, particularly in a new business, and I relish multi-tasking at the centre of the action to help us all work as efficiently and happily as possible.

A business result I'm proud of

They say a problem shared is a problem halved, so facilitating a number of ‘discussion dinners’ where businesses from various sectors could chat about the challenges they are facing in a continuously changing landscape was very rewarding. We helped them share their experiences of facing disruption - both good and bad - and created lively discussion and a great sense of collaborative spirit amongst the various businesses that attended.

A business reinvention I admire

I love the story of Love Film. Originally a monthly subscription with these guys gave you the right to rent a number of DVDs a month and get them in the post. But they spotted the signs of industry change early on and they changed quickly. Making sure users could stream video on demand and direct to a device. Yes it's an obvious and simple shift, but they reinvented their offer at the right time and in the right way.
