What does it mean to you to be named a Walpole 2020 Power List winner?
I’m delighted to be named a Walpole 2020 Power List winner, to be part of a network of passionate individuals who are pursuing excellence and positive change in their fields. To collaborate and support each other through celebrating success within this network is highly motivating.
Why do you think you were named on the List this year?
Walpole is actively championing Sustainability within British Luxury, with the launch of their Sustainability Manifesto and ongoing Sustainability Working Group. As part of this group I am committed to sharing experience and progress, supporting other members where I can and to identifying potential areas for shared action. I believe my selection reflects Walpole’s strong commitment to being a driving force behind a sustainable future for British Luxury.
