Head of Solutions Career path

I knew what I didn’t want to do but not what I did! I joined a graduate programme at L’Oreal straight from university and whilst working in market research there I was presented to by a company called dunnhumby. The rest, as they say, is history.

Head of Solutions Changes and Challenges

Flexible working – enabling women to better manage their hectic home lives alongside the demands of work.

Having a degree is not the only way but it definitely still helps. There is definitely space for women entrepreneurs and we need more.

Most leadership teams/boards I see in our industry are particularly vanilla. We need more diversity in these teams – more diversity in thinking, leading to better, high performing, successful teams.

Head of Solutions Advice

Do what you love and feel passionate about – don’t let anyone tell you you can’t. There are too many people out there who hate what they do which is a travesty, as work takes up such a big part of your life. Focus on something that you’re happy to get out of bed for!
