How do you keep up-to-date with the latest news in your sector?

I frequently read articles on changes and happenings in the industry, stay well connected on LinkedIn and regularly check in with relevant industry professionals.

What's your favourite film and why?

Honestly, I watch so many films it's difficult to pick just one, so for today I'm going to go with Mermaids because you can't go wrong with Cher!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

Definitely would have to be heels that turn into flats so that I wouldn't have to carry two pairs of shoes everywhere anymore
