What I do for the business:
I’m part of the Operations Team and my role is admin / organisation, everything from client onboarding to weekly WIP reports, executive diary management, organising travel and hotels, organising know-how sessions – amongst lots of other things!
What gets me out of bed in the morning
Making sure my teenage son is up for work or indeed home from the night before.
A nice cup of tea.
My husband’s snoring.
An entrepreneur I admire
Sir Richard Branson. I love his laid back hippy style. Virgin record shop. What he’s done for train travel. His charitable work. Seems like an approachable guy and I love his quotes, especially this one:
“Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”
Any podcast from Desert Island Disc.
I love this programme, finding out about people and their musical choices.
I especially love the unsung heroes – David Nott, Edna Adan Ismail, Sister Frances Dominica and Terry Waite – their stories are amazing.
A social cause I care about:
There are so many! Poverty, homelessness, pollution, the planet!
I focus on trying to make a difference in my local area.
