Proud moment

I’m proud of the last golf round I played, I was two over par after 16 holes and it was the first round of the year. I had to leave the course after 16 so I could not complete the round – it was set to be my best score ever!

Favourite era

I would have loved to have been a teenager/early 20s in the late 1960s/early 70s – love the era, the music, the styles of those times. I may not have the hair to match but really identify with those years!

From the start, my engagement with Eton Bridge Partners has been highly engaging and very rewarding. On a strategic level, I have been able to consult with Johan Wahlström, to get an EMEA-wide view of HR trends across industries and executive levels. He has been key to my collaboration with EBP, as he has proactively led the conversation and has introduced me to new insights in the European professional landscape.
