About me
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.

    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.

    I work with creators to explore how Blinkist can amplify their work and increase their reach & revenue; to connect big thinkers with the avid learners in our community, creating more value on both sides.
