    Global Senior Talent Acquisition Lead
    Booking.com
    As a Teenager I had hopes and dreams of escaping to the bright lights of London so that I could truly be myself and make it as a professional Actor. Both of these dreams were realised and so much more than I could have imagined. But it was tough going. As the World changed, I changed and my direction changed. Now I am a Talent Acquisition and HR professional for nearly 15 years. I had a huge passion for talent search and offering experiences that matter, be it to the Business or to Candidates. In TA you can really change lives, and you can impact the Business and People in a huge way. As a Leader I am still passionate about these things, but more so it is about growth, of my people.... in terms of craft but also as Human Beings. It's a pleasure to observe growth in people and know that you have contributed to that in some way. I focus a lot on realising a culture of inclusion and belonging and recognise having a sense of purpose and clear direction will foster feelings of care and pride in your work which in turn brings results. I am a proud to work for an organisation that celebrates diversity and stands for equality, that also recognises that there is still a lot of work to do. I have a role in that with my team, as a member of our LGBTQ+ resource group, as an Ally to all the others.... and as a Human.
