Top tips

  • Never be afraid to ask for help – in my experience people even the busiest and most senior people are always willing to give it.

  • Always maintain a sense of perspective and more importantly a sense of humour!

  • Progression isn’t a right it has to be earnt so always give a 100% and make the most of every opportunity however insignificant it might seem at the time.

  • Take time to understand the commercial objectives of the business and proactively look for ways to help in the delivery of these.

  • Career development is a journey not a destination. There is always more to learn.
