"The great thing about this job is the number of talented and inspiring individuals you get the chance to interact and work with every day."

I’m part of the value strategy team at Livingbridge, working with management teams of our investee companies to help define and execute strategies for growth. The best thing about this job is the chance to work with really talented teams to help them achieve ambitious plans for their business, but also to walk alongside them in the journey to get there and learn from the bumps in the road.

After graduating with a degree in economics and management from Oxford, I joined BCG as a strategy consultant. Whilst there I worked with clients across a broad range of industries including healthcare, consumer goods and media. I really enjoyed getting to know the management teams, understanding how their businesses operated, and helping them identify the right strategy and the levers to pull to achieve it.

I also had the chance to go on secondment to TimeInc UK in a more operational role where I worked with the commercial, marketing and data teams to help grow digital revenues. This gave me a better appreciation of the challenges of executing strategy in the ‘real world’ and taught me more about digital, especially marketing and the value of data.

I love to travel to new places, especially to try great food or explore the great outdoors - particularly for skiing, kitesurfing or hiking. Whilst in London, I can usually be found sharing a big meal with friends and family, or trying to burn it off cycling or at the gym.
