Position Learning & development manager, CH&Co
Nominator Alison Gilbert
Proudest career moment Personally, winning the Acorn. From a work perspective it has to be heading the project to get CH&Co Gold accreditation with Investors in People.
Greatest inspiration Passionate people! I love to hear about the exciting things that other people are doing in the sector.
Ambition My career to date has been about making the most of opportunities that come my way. I have no idea where I will end up but it will definitely be within the hospitality sector and as long as the work I do makes a difference that's ambition enough for me.
