I joined CheckdMedia in May 2018 as Office Admin Assistant. It's a young team so they need someone like myself to keep them in check and ensure the office runs like clock work. Although the work is fast paced, it's a great fun place to work and it makes me giggle when I hear break-time conversations, they keep me young! We have some great talent across the teams so watch this space for the next entrepreneur from CheckdMedia!
Who inspires you in business?
No one in particular springs to mind, I do get inspiration from working class people who have started with nothing and done well for themselves . Believe in yourself and don't take no for an answer. Hard work does pay off.
What has been your biggest achievement in your career?
Appointed Director at the young age of 25 as PA/Office Manager for a small Retail and Manufacturing Company. I ran the business on a day to day basis whilst the MD was out on the road building up the business. During my twelve years at the Company I set up two Retail Shops, Staged a 2 day UK Exhibition for Exhibitors/Visitors (500 visitors per day) and staged a 4 day Fashion Show in Atlanta, Georgia.
What do you do in your spare time?
My sport was netball - sport is a great way to get rid of tension and would recommend it to anyone. Since retiring from netball I try to keep fit by attending fitness classes and brisk walking with my Sister. Family and friends play an important part in my life whether it be inviting them round for dinner or going out for something to eat/drink. I love trying different restaurants/bars and love to "people watch". I have given up the nightclub scene!
