As a History graduate of the University of Birmingham, I chose to follow a career in consultancy; everybody else was choosing Accountancy or Law, and I was determined to do something different! In the intervening 20 years this decision has been vindicated, my work experience taking me across utilities, pharmaceuticals, government, telecoms, financial services, energy and, most recently, FMCG.
The work that I do at Berkeley is extremely varied. Having landed in the firm in 2002, I was thrust into supporting the reorganisation of a manufacturing firm, followed in short order by a project turnaround, then a systems review piece which led to a supplier selection and a delivery role for an underwriter in the City of London. I've worked with organisations ranging in size from 150 people to over 100,000, and have roamed across the globe from Birmingham to Bermuda. Life here is rarely dull!
With two young children, free time tends to be at something of a premium, however I am an avid film buff and have a head chock full of useless cinematic trivia. I also have a keen interest in aviation, and still retain a misty-eyed aspiration to renew my long-since lapsed flying license.
