Since 2011, I've worked with scientists and engineers at all levels, from CTO/CSO all the way to graduate engineer/scientist who work for: Arm, Fujitsu, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Astra Zeneca, Deloitte, Imagination, Cambridge University, Cranfield University and many more. I guest lecture at Cambridge University, Department of Engineering (Institute for Manufacturing) on effective communication with executives in corporate environments. I won Cofinitive's Top 7 People to Watch 2019 and was nominated on Computer Weekly’s Top Influencing Women in IT list in 2021 and 2022.

After she spoke to countless engineers and scientists with whom she worked and asked their opinion over several years, the vast majority (93%) said they loved the name and found it quirky, so she decided to take it on.

I have a track record of working with science and technology executives for whom I have achieved:
