Role: I am responsible for leading our UK office, working with our senior team to ensure we attract and retain the best talent, deliver great work for our clients, and identify new and innovative approaches to keep us relevant in our ever-evolving industry. I take an active role in championing our business externally, always keen to hear from our key clients and suppliers and like to get involved in industry events and forums, working with others to contribute new ideas and fresh thinking.

What’s the best thing about your job?
Working with a team of very talented individuals and delivering work that really inspires others to make a difference.
In your opinion, what would make the world a better place?
Less emails – oh and calorie-free chocolate!
What’s your favourite type of project to work on and why?
I like all kinds but probably Patient Research best, because although it can be very challenging it’s often the most rewarding. I’m thinking of the work we did with Rethink Mental Illness that led to a change in Mental Health legislation. Ultimately, it’s why we do what we do.
What do you do in your spare time?
Sing with a bunch of friends with the Greater Manchester Rock Choir to raise money for local and national charity events.
