New business

The most interesting thing I've worked on in my career so far...

We have built the partnerships team up from scratch, the growth has been exponential over the last 2 years and the forecast is huge.

What inspired me into digital and tech...

The world is moving in a new direction, being at the forefront of that change is inspiring. We work with companies who are changing the way we think, the way we view business and in most cases shaping the future for generations to come.

My educational background is...

I briefly attended university but didn't think it was for me. All qualifications outside of school have been done whilst in role and in my opinion have given me the opportunity to have a working example of the methods/processes in the real world.

What advice I'd give to girls thinking about a career in digital and tech...

A career in digital and tech doesn't always mean beings hands on with the technical aspects of the industry. Supporting the growth of the industry itself is as important. Strive to be part of the change, follow your passion and carve out the career you have always wanted.
