I've been working in the technical and creative industries for almost 20 years both in London as well as Sydney, Australia. I have worked for large organisations such as the BBC, American Express, MSN as well as small and large creative digital agencies such as VCCP where I have been for the last 3.5 years.
My experience has taught me a great deal about how to get the best out of any situation. However I couldn't have progressed without the support and teachings of those senior to me. I would really like to take those learnings and pass them onto a younger generation. I have been regularly mentoring individuals for the last 10 years of my career and believe strongly in supporting those coming through the industry and helping them to make a difference as well as taking pride in their craft as a project manager and leader.
My team is between 25 to 30 people, all at varying levels from Junior PM's to Project Directors and I believe that an investment in people is sometimes missing in the industry we work on. In 2014, I won the Creative Services category for the IPA's Women of Tomorrow Award and was acknowledged for my approach to people management, leadership as well as my ability to problem solve and deliver.
