Working in global pharmaceutical organisations for over 20 years means my expertise in business acumen requires skills in accountability, communication, negotiation and listening.  Having a daughter attend EMS, my passion is to ensure that we build on diversity and inclusion allowing all pupils regardless of strengths and background to achieve their potential.
