Being part of someone’s journey to develop and grow is both an honour and responsibility. I’ll be ‘in’ with both feet.

Why do you want to be a mentor?

Mentees who become part of this programme want to grow. If I can help them, particularly by helping them grow in confidence, by realising that they aren’t alone; that someone else has been there, in their shoes previously, and is there to help support and guide them as they navigate the challenges they are facing, then I find that exciting.

Born and bred in the UK, I am a Scot by birthright. Following university in the UK, I joined P&G in Finance and spent 2 years sitting 4 stages of CIMA exams. Once they were all passed I transferred to the Marketing Department which by then I knew to be my passion.

I spent nearly 7 years with P&G working in Haircare (Pantene, Vidal Sassoon, NPD) in the UK and Geneva. I was then headhunted from P&G to become Marketing Director of IPC Media Southbank’s magazine portfolio. After 3 years and an acquisition by AOL Time Warner I left to move to Australia where I joined McDonald’s Australia in a senior marketing role. This journey included being part of a small team of senior executives and ultimately the Board who led the turnaround of the business over a period of about 10 years.

I held the CMO and COO positions over this time. Following this I began a Non Executive career which so far has seen me work with various publically listed companies on the ASX. I am currently the Chair of one company and am a NED on two others. I live in the Southern Highlands, 90mins south of Sydney with my husband and 11 year old daughter. When I am not working or mentoring I am normally to be found on a horse or a tractor!
