Which European country that you have not yet visited is top of your list to see, and why? Greece, to see all the history and maybe climb Mount Olympus. Denmark and Sweden are up there too but I need some sun first!

What is your speciality dish to cook? I was going to say a simple Roast Chicken but according to my boyfriend it’s Coconut Lime Fish with rice.

If you were to give one suggestion to the CEO of LinkedIn, what would it be? A smarter timeline – at the moment you can see new posts or top posts, it would be nice to have a combination of both.

What is the most enjoyable book that you’ve read recently? I’m a big fantasy reader so it would have to be Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive series, I’m obsessed.

What would be your karaoke song? I don’t do karaoke. Not even in hypothetical questions.

Who would be the guests at your dream dinner party? Joe Lycett, Mary Berry, and Mel & Sue – it would be wholesome and hilarious and Mary would bring dessert without me even asking because she’s amazing. In fact, anyone from Bake Off can come, except sorry, Paul Hollywood, you’re not invited and I’ll be serving store-bought bread.

What do you most enjoy about working in executive search? The variety of projects.

Mountains or sea? Mountains

What is your favourite film? Probably The Lion King – I’m partial to Disney, nostalgia and cats.

What would you rather fight – 20 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? One horse-sized duck.
