Career & Background

What inspired you to do what you are doing now?

I’m not exactly sure what initially inspired me to work in advertising. I have a very literal/rational mindset, but I love it when I get to think laterally / creatively as well. So with this in mind, I do know that I always wanted to work somewhere with a strong mix of both business and creativity. It was either advertising or architecture.

What was your journey and where are you headed in your career right now?

What are your core values?

  • Optimism
  • Perseverance

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Angela Ahrendts is my idol. To have taken a brand like Burberry who was so ‘on the nose’ and whose brand equity was dragged down by ‘Euro-trash chavs’, back to being a darling of fashion weeks right across Europe is no mean feat! And in 8 years no less. Is it any wonder that this lady-boss, retail power-house was wooed by Apple to become their retail lead and their highest-paid executive. She’s also a Mum. #seriousgoals
