About me

Having worked as a marketing executive for Accenture’s Communication, Media Technology UKI (CMT) department. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside the box and being as creative as possible in order to accomplish the task or goal that I face. My previous role as a Lifecoach has enabled me to develop strong communication, relationship building and organisational skills. I am resilient and have an ability to motivate people who lack enthusiasm or drive, which are necessary to be successful in any environment. As part of a CrossFit community I have developed a strong sense of self motivation, a quality which I carry into the workplace. I have a keen sense of social responsibility which has lead me to be involved in community projects wherever I have found myself whether in Africa, Birmingham and more recently in London.
