Since leaving university, I’ve worked with leading professional and financial services companies like Linklaters, KPMG, Korn Ferry and S&P Global. I specialise in developing campaigns that support sales and have built an award-winning track record. 


Studying Philosophy equipped me with many skills that are important in the working word. From distilling complex ideas and communicating with clarity, to supporting arguments with sound reason and challenging the status quo, what I learned has stood in me in good stead and has undoubtedly influenced the approach and vision of my company, Stack.

But it’s also been the vibrant community and space for discussion created by the Philosophy faculty and PhilSoc that has set the tone for my career. I’m challenged by my work and spend every day in the company of smart, interesting and supportive colleagues and clients.
