Why did you become an Enterprise Adviser?

“I fell into a career of working with people to be the best they can be. Whether that is young people or middle aged managers, I have always worked closely with training, leadership and organisation development. Leading an organisation that has a mission to inspire people to make a contribution to their community is a great privilege.”

What careers advice would you give to your 16-year-old self?

“Think about the things you enjoy, and try as many roles as you need before finding somewhere you feel comfortable and fulfilled. Listen to advice of others, but use their advice wisely.”
