After graduating from Oxford University as a wannabe planner, I realised half of my ambition by joining WCRS - albeit as an account handler on a promise to move over, as and when it felt right!

Over the next twelve years I worked as a suit on a variety of great accounts and brands big and small; from 3 to Radox, Churchill, Foster's and Transport for London, moving over the square to M&C Saatchi in the process. As a Business Director, I became heavily involved in M&C Saatchi's graduate recruitment and oversaw their grad training scheme for several years while working on clients including the Olympic Delivery Authority, Bathstore and Ribena.

Two children later, I decided to focus on talent, and finally embrace my inner planner by setting up the planning practice at a small, boutique head hunter. After a brief stint at The Talent Business doing the same, I was then lucky enough to move over to Grace Blue and the world of executive search, refocusing my efforts across the entire media and communications spectrum and getting the opportunity to work with some of the best people in the business across all disciplines.
