Gladiator - it's a timeless film with a great cast and fantastic story. They don't make them like that anymore.

I'd love to have a teleport. I love to travel but some places are so far away! I'd love to press a button and be able to spend the weekend on the beach in Fiji.

What's your favourite film and why?

I'm a big fan of the new(ish) Bond movies, so I'd have to say Spectre or Skyfall. Failing that anything with Adam Sandler in it.

I'd love to invent a device that could see into the future (or just at next week's winning lottery numbers!)

Mrs Doubtfire - it's an all time classic and I pretty much know it word for word. I love a good thriller too, anything with a good twist at the end. Law Abiding Citizen with Gerard Butler is one of my faves. 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

Pizza that makes you slim! 

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

I love watching pretty much any sport. I play netball twice a week and come from a footballing family, so have been taught how to do kick ups (my record is 21 without hitting the floor!)

Speaking with candidates and clients daily keeps me updated on any industry changes or news and getting involved in LinkedIn groups as well as reading any news articles.

What’s your favourite film and why?

This is a hard one as there is so many to pick but I think it would have to be Love Actually, it never gets old and has it all - humour, love and is a little bit of a tear jerker.

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

If I could invent one thing it would be a machine that you could step into that would get your ready in minutes and would have loads of clothes and make up options to choose from.

What makes you distinctly different?

I used to work on a cruise ship and was able to visit the most amazing countries and meet people from all over the world, which I would not have met or went to if it was not for this opportunity. It also teaches you to work with a diverse group of people and have build great friendships from this.

What's your favourite film and why?

Tim Burton's Big Fish has to be my go-to film of choice. An over the top, fantastical and emotional story of epic proportions full of weird and quirky touches...escapism at it's finest!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

If I could invent one thing it would be to make the Replicator from Star Trek a reality - I love food but hate cooking after a busy day in the office so this would be ideal! 

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

Having studied art I like to think I look at things with a creative twist and have the ability to look beyond the obvious. This is helpful when it comes to guiding and advising candidates and clients to overcome potential problems and arrive at the best conclusion for all.

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!

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

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

I would have to take a page out of Elon Musk's book and would invent a way for people to be transported around, similar to the way they do in the show Futurama. I just think it would make things ten times easier and quicker.

What makes me Distinctly Different is the interest I have into why you might be looking to leave a role and would really focus on that aspect to find you one that could eliminate that problem for good.
