What Makes An Effective Leader?
Being part of making memories for people, sparks joy. I love my job… it makes me happy, so I know I am doing something right. Promotor of genuine experience driven marketing initiatives and events that deliver real emotive connections with audiences. Supporter of collaborative thinking, genuine work friendships and a progressive but kind attitude to leadership. I don’t claim to know everything, but think I have a pretty grounded take on things! Food experiences are everything… as is travel. Covid-19, well the struggle is real.
