I am agile in identifying and securing strategic partnerships and new business opportunities, having lead commercial relationships and brand strategies at global publishers and agencies. I was a director of brand strategy at BuzzFeed where I forged global partnerships with the UK Foreign Office, Diageo and Amazon for example. I was also part of the leadership team at Protein London – a creative agency and influencer network, where I developed cross-media brand partnerships with Microsoft, Samsung and ASOS amongst others.
With my background in digital strategy and media activation, I’ve also built an expertise in digital marketing. I’ve lead a number of digital projects, award-winning content strategies and social media campaigns for global and local brands such as Adidas, Cadbury, Oreo, Pernod Ricard and Alzheimer’s Society. I also deliver actionable insights, thought-leadership and workshops at C-level to upskill clients in digital and brand opportunities.
I have a keen interest in technology and innovation, and my passions include travel and culture, wellness and food & drinks.
