Partner, Transformation

What do you do at &us?

I want to build &us into a rebel alliance that can really make an impact in the world. That means I spend my time building the best environment possible for the incredible &us community to guide (and learn from) our client partners at the forefront of innovation.

What do you care about most in your work?

That people are free to create the world they think is possible – both for themselves and the organisations they work for. Not just our clients, but &us too.

What did you do prior to &us?

I’ve had lots of brilliant incarnations I’m incredibly grateful for. I have spent time as a journalist, I’ve led market-defining start ups, I worked on the Olympics in 2012, I’ve worked in innovation consultancies, and I’m a mum of 2 fierce girls.

What do you do for fun outside of work?

My perfect day involves swimming somewhere wild, a good book and a great conversation that puts the world to rights. In another universe, I would be a collector of antique jewellery or I would run a book/plant/coffee shop.

Talk to me about…

How organisations should be more like Jellyfish, Fungus or Ferns.
