Sophie Tennison

I am from Yorkshire and grew up in a loving single-parent household on the coast. As a consequence of growing up by the sea, I started my working life making donuts and working in fish and chip shops from a young age which I really enjoyed. I credit my strong work ethic from growing up in a hard-working family.

I went to a stated school and progressed to Leeds University after securing a scholarship and studied History being the first generation in my family to attend University.

My career started at Bank of New York and then joined I the world of Investment Consulting in 2016. I currently work at WTW as a client lead and head up the Commercial management stream in the UK.

After being closed involved in Diversity Project as a Steering Committee member, I am proud to still be part of Diversity Project as an Ambassador. I am passionate about being part of a project dedicated to making positive and sustainable change in our industry.
