THE BIG QUESTIONS
WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSIONAL TITLE?
WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS?
I oversee the running of the company. I work closely with all the teams within the company, such as the sales team, to ensure we are hitting targets. As well as overseeing the targets for the team, I liaise directly with the clients once they have come on board. I oversee the management of a new website design and build, and work closely with the client, fact finding their needs and ensuring we are providing the best possible website for them.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO DO WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD AND WHAT CHANGED?
I always wanted to be famous but then realised I couldn’t sing, dance or act!
WHAT ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS DO YOU HAVE?
I graduated at university with a 2:1 in sociology and criminology.
WHAT’S THE BEST CAREER ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN?
Do not give up. Perseverance is everything.
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL AND WHY?
My husband. He continues to support me in everything I do and is such a hard worker. His attitude to work truly inspires me.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR CURRENT WORKING ENVIRONMENT?
The atmosphere. Myself and the other director in the business have worked in a sales environment ourselves for years and we wanted to bring all the best parts of each company we worked in to our office. It’s a fun lively environment but we all work really hard and are rewarded massively.
WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR DAILY WORK ROUTINE IF YOU COULD?
Although it sounds cliché but just more hours in the day! It’s difficult to juggle running two businesses and being a mother of two small children.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF PROFESSIONALLY IN FIVE YEARS’ TIME?
Having an office in either LA or New York for Trio Media with a client retainer of at least 150 clients.
DO YOU FEEL YOU CAN BE THE SAME PERSON AT WORK AND IN PRIVATE?
Absolutely. It’s almost a fault in me. I literally wear my emotions on my face and there is no escaping it.
WHERE AND IN WHAT ROLES ARE WOMEN IN THE LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE AT YOUR COMPANY?
Myself and the other director both run the company together.
DOES DIVERSITY MATTER TO YOU?
Absolutely. I am an Asian female in a directorship/ownership position. I believe being diverse is the answer to finding the best talent resulting in better performance within the business.
HOW GOOD IS YOUR WORK LIFE BALANCE?
I have small girls at school, so I always make the time for them. I work hard but the weekends (while they are awake!) are all about family and friends for me. I do work when they’re sleeping on an evening but that’s a sacrifice I am willing to make to be able to sit and have dinner and breakfast with them.
WHAT QUALITIES DOES BEING IN YOUR ROLE NECESSITATE?
Although I am a director in the company it is important I am approachable by everyone in the office. The ambience in the office is key to how they all perform.
