I worked in Financial Services for over 35 years, with Coutts & Co, Invesco Asset Management and latterly 22 years with Northern Trust (NT). During my career I held many challenging roles, finishing as Divisional Head of Client Services in Global Fund Services responsible for 50+ Asset Managers. My latter years also gave me the opportunity as Divisional Head of D&I. In 2017 I initiated a mental health campaign at Northern Trust which sparked a passion for mental health and wellbeing. Whilst at NT I was a member of the Diversity Project’s Mental Health Awareness workstream.
On leaving NT in 2019 I decided to focus on the mental health and wellbeing, training as a Mental Health First Aid instructor, qualifying in 2020. I set up my company to provide MHFA England training as well as broader bespoke training in the field. My long career in Financial Services and experience in mental health and wellbeing brings new opportunities to assist driving forward this important subject.
