"I am a risk, governance and control specialist with significant experience delivering advisory services to a range of large complex organisations"

I have 16 years' experience of providing risk, internal audit and advisory services to FTSE100, FTSE250 and equivalent privately held groups. I support clients in their management of risk, generating insights and providing value-adding assurance.

My experience covers a range of sectors including retail, FMCG, technology, energy, engineering and hospitality. I lead several of our key client relationships, working closely with senior stakeholders and executive/board committees. I support my clients providing integrated assurance services, leveraging technical specialists and international teams and regularly sharing targeted insights to ensure continuous improvement. I also have the perspective of working in industry, spending time on secondments as a head of audit, where I was responsible for strategic internal audit advice and support and delivering a programme of risk based reviews. I lead our internal audit external quality Assessment services so have great knowledge of what good looks like in leading practice and innovative functions. I also lead our service line helping my clients respond to the emerging Corporate Governance reform agenda, including Internal Control (UK SOX) requirements.

I play a key role in our people and talent processes in the business risk services team and supporting the firm’s inclusion and diversity strategy.

When not at work, I can be found spending time with my family and friends, planning my next trip or sharpening my newly found gardening skills at home.
