Studying French at university gave me the opportunity to live in my favourite city, Paris. After graduating I entered the world of advertising agency account management and spent a couple of years being trained at Grey. I then moved to AMV.BBDO where I became a Board Account Director in 1999. In 2003 I joined the BBC's TV marketing department and then began headhunting in 2005, working with planning talent. As Managing Director and head of the Strategy Practice I am lucky enough to work with extremely talented people everyday. Outside of work the perfect me balances work, family and friends faultlessly and has time to read, exercise, appreciate fine wine and good food. The real me aspires to this.
