Director Indirect Purchasing
What’s the biggest challenge you have faced as a woman in business to date?
Coming to terms with the fact that there are companies that will not value women as much as men - stop trying to change them, but avoid them.
Who has inspired you (male or female)?
There is not a single person who has inspired me, it is the many great people I have had the honour of working and studying with over the past 15 years.
What do you wish you’d known when you started out and/ or what advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t stay for too long with a manager who has no interest in your development.
What are the character traits of successful women and/ or what do you think makes a good leader?
You have to listen and be able to learn from your mistakes, regardless of your experience level.
Do you have a favourite quote or statement that sums up your approach to life?
Don’t let other people define your limits!
What do you #ChooseToChallenge?
I challenge the glorification of being busy and advocate for a healthy balance.
