Q & A
What are you most proud of in your career?
Building the expertise I have in financial services, in spite of coming from an arts background. I would not have imagined aged 18 that I’d end up having such an interest and specialism in investment!
Name one thing most people don’t know about you.
I’m a trained cook and funded my student travels by doing private chef work in the Alps, South of France and across the UK.
How would your mother describe you?
A chip off the old block (unless it’s something she doesn’t want to acknowledge, in which case it’s usually ‘you get that from your father.’)
What are your greatest strengths as a communications practitioner?
Honest, a good listener, cool-headed in a crisis and able to retain my sense of humour.
What is your favorite food?
I always say that my last meal would have to be a tasting meal, as I couldn’t decide on one thing!

One that wants to work as a team, is willing to try new things and sees us as true, trusted advisers.

Ski-touring, traveling and improving my knowledge of wine.

Spending time with clients and colleagues getting to know them away from the desk.
