Collaboration is a big part of my world, I head up Women 1st and am responsible growing the talent pipeline and showcasing positive female role models.
If I’m not in London I’m on my houseboat down on the waterfront taking in the amazing skyline of Liverpool where I am now adopted and proud to shout about all that is amazing here.
