Managing director, Insight UK
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
It has to be Elon Musk - one of the most audacious men on the planet. He is brave and fearless, two qualities I admire the most.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
Optimising the workforce of the future - the acceptance that in the future an increasing percentage of our workforce will not be human.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Benazir Bhutto, Audrey Hepburn and Frank Sinatra. Each come with their own fascinating stories and insights into days and attitudes of old - this would make for an interesting, entertaining and glamorous evening!
How has 2017 been for you?
2017 has been a great year so far. I returned to work from maternity leave in February and while balancing my career and trying to be ‘Super Mum' can be demanding, I'm loving every second. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a fantastic job and an incredibly supportive family. It makes life both fun and rewarding.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
On a yacht in the South of France. It was a team lunch for exceptional performance so not only was it a fantastic setting but we were celebrating as well - a great way to recognise success!
Which global city best matches your personality?
New York - lively, fast-paced and busy!
What would be your super-hero power?
I'd love to be able to fly so I can move around more quickly (and avoid airport delays!).
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is…they are formidable.
What makes you nervous?
People I don't trust, and travelling without an iron!
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cake - the more indulgent the better.
