My role at Waterstons is...

Spent rolling my sleeves up (with the occasional high vis jacket) to really get to know my clients in detail including their business strategy, operations and people. I work with my clients to define their key challenges, create transition and IT strategies, create innovation roadmaps, understand more about their customers, find solutions to meet business needs and manage the implementation of these changes. I love being able to work across the whole of my clients' businesses with a range of people.

My proudest Waterstons moment is...

Working with a global manufacturer to carve out the European business operations into a new company. There were a lot of long days spent in the warehouses and manufacturing sites, plus the added challenge of working with multiple people across various time zones. All the planning and testing all came together as we managed to successfully migrate the technology and processes from the original parent company to a business that could now operate independently ahead of the deadline.

My life away from work is...

Spent with my friends exploring and walking around the North East. I also love to travel further afield, especially to the USA where I have been lucky enough to tour around both the East and West coasts.
