I’ve worked in People roles for the last 15 years. I did my HR ‘growing up’ in Carlsberg UK and was lucky to do a variety of roles there, finishing with a role in development, engagement and communications. I spent four years with Urban Outfitters supporting the growth of their European Supply Chain, particularly focused on developing an employee focused culture within their distribution campus.
I joined LDA Design as Head of People in April 2016 and am so excited to be part of this very special organisation. I’m fascinated by workplace culture and genuinely believe that the culture and leadership of a business can make or break its success. I love to watch people grow and develop, and working with managers and leaders to help them create the environment that brings out the best in people.
Outside work, I spend my time eating and drinking with my favourite people and if I can throw in a live band or festival too then my weekend is pretty much perfect!
Simon Sinek and his thoughts on leadership and the impacts leaders can have. My new hero!
A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman. Beautifully told and made me laugh and cry, a lot.
My parent’s back garden: they moved to Lot-et-Garonne a number of years ago to live the good life. It’s such a beautiful spot. I love to sit overlooking the maize field with the chateau in the distance, listening to the kites calling, normally on my second or third glass of wine, enjoying the sun on my face. I feel myself relaxing just at the thought of it.
