I'm a lane straddler. You know what I mean - I love that undefined place between two different sectors, that allows me to skip between and appreciate the best of both. In my case, the oh-so traditional world of book publishing (and other content creation) and fast-moving digital services (subscription, retail). Both have their charms and frustrations; the beauty lies in how they marry together, particularly commercially. My other obsession is promoting the unsung power of parents at work. Never will you go on such an intense leadership course as raising a child. Resilience, creativity, communication skills, adaptability - all essential to raising kids well and also (coincidentally?) among the 'most desired' list published by LinkedIn. Think on that.

- The Bill Bryson Collection, only at AudibleAward-winning and highly acclaimed author Bill Bryson delivers a captivating performance in his narration of his novel One Summer: America 1927. Bryson’s deeply researched novel captures the importance of unconnected events in the American summer of 1927 that became significant milestones in modern history. This complete and unabridged historical audiobook from Audible Studios delves into this summer at many angles - from seeing the face of aviation and international travel change forever, to the booming peak for those living blissfully unaware of the dawn of the Great Depression that would soon be upon them all.
- altMBA: Continue the JourneyIn January 2018, I joined an inspiring cohort of students in Seth Godin's altMBA programme. The education I gained goes beyond the tools and techniques of business models, sales, and marketing. I learned that I am a creator as well as a builder. That teachers are everywhere. That even under great stress, I have the capacity to be generous and supportive of others. And that empathy is the key to success. Thank you, Ravens. You can read my course work here. Don't judge me too harshly.
- The Voice of Jon RonsonWorking with Jon Ronson is one of the highlights of my career. Not only is his work fascinating, thoughtful and personal, he has one of the most unique voices I've encountered. To listen to him reading his work is a delight. So, as well as acquiring audio rights to his existing work, we commissed Jon to create an original documentary: The Butterfly Effect. I urge you to listen - you won't be disappointed.

After becoming a parent, it (slowly) dawned on me that my ability to ‘bridge’ different sectors could also help me make better use of what I was learning at home and at work. Ask any parent what skills they’ve developed since raising kids and you get a list eerily similar to LinkedIn’s ‘most in-demand’ qualities: creativity, persuasion, flexibility… the list goes on. Rarely, however, do we make that connection; to harness the commercial value of those parenting skills in business. So, if you’re an ambitious parent or progressive company with the drive to make better use of the superpowers in your midst, get in touch – I’m your woman. This is my passion and I have tools ready and waiting to support you.
