What do you focus on 

I am a marketing consultant with Halebury and work closely with the board across all areas of marketing with a focus on profile.

My diverse experience enables me to operate in an entrepreneurial way with the benefit of a more traditional marketing background.

Tell us a bit about your working style and life outside lawyering

I aim to provide straight-forward, accessible, jargon-free and commercial marketing advice. I believe strongly in collaboration and working in a way that is both positive and dare I say it, fun.
