I have an analytical mind and I’m a short-sleeper so I’m always full of energy, creativity and raring to go (don’t give me too much caffeine!). Both traits help massively in being able to methodically work though what needs to be achieved each day in the world of You HR. I like to be planned and organised but I’ve learnt in running a business that being able to work with agility is a must.
If I was to sum up my approach in one word it would be ‘collaborative’.
Why You HR Consultancy
Because it’s all about the people!
Prior to setting up You HR, I was been fortunate enough in my career/life in general to foster great experiences from amazing opportunities along with learning and observing things that didn’t quite go to plan – we are after all only human!
People have always fascinated me; there’s nothing better than having a bit of wind down time, watching the world go by and observing different idiosyncrasies when ‘people watching’.
All my experiences helped to crystallise my vision for You HR, and define our niche, our purpose where we perform at our best – to work through people situations in work in the right way, well, and achieve the right outcomes.
We practice what we preach and recognise that understanding people in the workplace is never ending!
Family is everything and I love to live life to its fullest potential. There’s nothing better in the world than spending time with those closest to me; exploring, being adventurous, any excuse to get out and about and try something new or different. That said I equally enjoy being snuggled up watching a movie on the sofa.
One thing I will say is that I’m not a creature of habit so my interests change but whatever I’m up to I always have a constant theme of physical and mental wellbeing. I think it’s important for us all and particularly when you have a career in HR!
I am a foodie and appreciate a decent glass of wine. I’d like to say what my favourite cuisine is but that’s a tough one… For me it’s more about the celebration of eating, like the French do… a time for people to come together and enjoy, not just merely cherishing the taste.
