Managing Director @ The PIE: media, recruitment and business consultancy for international education | London

Time to read: 4 minutes

How did you start out?

I studied journalism at university and spent a year studying in France as part of that. I arrived with inadequate French and it was tough but also an amazing, life-changing year for me and the beginning of my affinity for the study abroad industry.

What helped you get as far as you have?

Understanding husband, supportive family, and a competitive streak.

If you could give one piece of advice to your 21 year old self, what would it be?

Don't be afraid to say you don't know something, even if you think it might reveal your ignorance. On many occasions I have realised others in the room don't know either and appreciate my candour.

How would you describe yourself in one word?

Driven.

How old were you when you had your first paying job, and what was it?

A newspaper delivery girl on my bike; my Dad came with me as I could hardly carry the Sunday papers on my own! I was 13.

What do you do to keep yourself centered?

I switch off every weekend.

What is your favourite quote?

Adapt or die!

What would your superpower be?

To reverse our Brexit referendum decision!

Which of your achievements are you most proud of?

The PIEoneer Awards which The PIE organised this year were a huge success and seeing a group of our readers, and the global extent of our network, represented by 250 delegates from multiple countries was a high point of the year for us. Rewarding innovation in international ed is logical next step for our multi-faceted media, recruitment and now events company.
