I studied Interior Architecture at university, it is my ultimate hobby, however, following my graduation there was little prospect for progression in this field, so I looked into other avenues. Being competitive in nature meant that business management was of interest to me.
I gained skills in hospitality, management, retail, and then decided to go travelling. I lived in both China & Holland. This helped to grow my enthusiasm for wanting a career that allowed me the freedom to travel and network with all kinds of people. Returning to Scotland I came across the outsourced sales and marketing industry, it offered a challenging, competitive workload and the opportunity to travel, so was perfectly suited to me.
Learning everything from scratch was hugely rewarding. My future goals quickly evolved and I became focused on building my own business in this sector.
I opened Blue Branch in September 2014, starting with a strong foundation, we quickly developed a strong business in Edinburgh. We have already expanded into Glasgow, with plans for a third expansion with our client within the next 18 months.
My future goals are:
1. An organisation of 12 offices by the time I am 30 years of age.
2. Expand into the US.
3. To keep creating more opportunities and changing people's lives.
The most rewarding part of our industry is the fact that I meet amazing and interesting people on a daily basis, building fantastic friendships. To train someone from the fundamentals all the way towards their new career is incredibly rewarding to me as a business owner.
