The PwC Pantomime

Over the last 6 months, I spent a lot of my time with a professional pantomime company, at PwC, in the cast of Sleeping Beauty 2019. This was a very special experience for me as I’ve always dreamed of performing in the West End but never did I think that would come true! So as we pack away the glitter and costumes for another year I wanted to share my experience with you.

Founding 50, School of Marketing

Before Christmas, I made an exciting announcement that I have been chosen to join the Founding 50, a group of 50 marketers aged under 30 who are passionate about inspiring the next generation of talent in our industry. We kicked things off last week with our first meet up at Ogilvy UK in London and it was so exciting to meet my fellow founding 50 and discuss our ideas and plans to take this initiative forward. I wanted to share a little more information about this and why I think it’s perfect timing for the future of our industry.

Lessons from 2018, goals for 2019

2018 is almost over, the Christmas decorations are being packed away in boxes and I’m recovering from eating and drinking far too much over the holidays. But before I welcome in the new year with friends and family, I like to spend some time reflecting on how my year has gone, what lessons I’ve learned and what I want to achieve going forward so that I start the new year on the right foot. So, here’s my year in summary.

How to be an overnight success

I came across this book on social media and immediately wanted to read it. Maria Hatzistefanis, founder and CEO of Rodial, shares her journey to success and tips and advice for following your dreams! This is an honest account of what it takes to run your own business and deal with everything that comes from being a global success. For anyone interested in becoming an entrepreneur or if you’re into your beauty and fashion then this is a must read.

Networking: back to basics

In the Autumn I ran a session for sales and marketing executives titled the art of networking. People often feel insecure or out of their comfort zone when put in a room full of strangers and quite frankly find the situation awkward. I know I did before I started attending 2 events a week. I think practice is the key here. So for those of you who find that networking doesn’t come naturally to you, I’ve included some of my top tips to help you. These worked for me, so hopefully they’ll work for you too!
