How would you describe your job?
This is always a tricky question… I feel I do a bunch of things so occasionally have an identity crisis. I was a TV host and now I suppose I am an entrepreneur-in-training.
How did you get your start?
My first job as a TV reporter for ITN, a new network in the UK. Think Bridget Jones….
What did you want to be "when you grew up"?
A TV presenter.
What do you dislike about your job?
The pressure, the fear and the worry. I hate letting people down, so I put a lot of pressure on myself to prove myself to the people who believe in me.
Best advice you ever received?
As long as you've tried your hardest, that’s all anyone can ask for. What is meant for you, will not pass you by.
What would you advise someone today?
Work hard. Work hard and work hard. It may be painful, you may feel like it’s going much slower compared to other people, but hard work always pays off.
What is your workwear style?
Black heeled boots, black tights and a day dress. Quite practical.
3 characteristics required to do your job well.
Passionate, creative and committed.
Greatest achievement to date?
The TEDx talk I delivered in September was a lifetime goal come true and launching Pop & Suki.
How would you define success?
Freedom to do as I like—and that doesn’t necessarily mean having the best of everything. I just want to wake up and work on things that inspire me, be around people who challenge me and feel I’m always progressing, learning and feeling loved.
