I have worked in the Insurance industry for 32 years in a variety of roles, from claims handling to training, including a spell as an account executive.

My current role is as Business Partner with responsibility for the Business School, providing technical, leadership and business skills training to all Network Members. These courses are delivered both face-to-face and by webinar to maximise the opportunities for Network Members to develop the skills of their staff.

Outside work, my interests range from supporting Reading FC as a season ticket holder, to cinema. I try to get to the movies once a week, where my preference is for independent and foreign-language films, and definitely not superheros, remakes or sequels. My great passion, however, is the music of Bruce Springsteen – I have been a fan since 1980 and have travelled across Europe and the US to see his shows.
