Self description

Female , 63

I am a senior corporate communications professional, managing a worldwide team for a publicly quoted hotel company. I am married with grown up step children. I travel a great deal with my job which is great as I suffer from serious wanderlust! Hobbies are having fun, keeping fit, theatre, books and movies.

Life experiences

Managing a team

I manage a team of professionals both here in London and all over the world. Keeping them focussed and motivated is a challenge!

Starting and selling a business

I started a small, specialist PR consultancy which I ran profitably for 7 years before having the opportunity to sell out to one of the big guys. I earned out for a 4 year period too, which was an interesting experience.

Balancing career and home life

I guess none of us are experts in this but it is something I struggle with daily and have some strategies to support my attempt to achieve it!

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Lots of people have been generous to me with their time and advice over all my years in business. Sometimes a problem shared or a simple 'reality check' from an objective, experienced outsider can make all the difference.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
