I am a very pro-active consultant in the tech - fin-,med- and ed-, food and health/beauty, and professional service sectors, particularly around preparing for and being introduced to funding options, in the UK and abroad. Additional experience since 2014 has seen me in an intermediary role, connecting fintech companies seeking funding, with SMEs needing to use fintech funding services, and educating all levels of business owner and financial services executives as to what this third industrial revolution means for them. I'm keen on the expanding global fintech ecosystem, and particularly on UK-US traffic. I have been nominated for a Maserati 100 Award, Prowess Award for Inspiring Women in Business, for the ITV Woman of the Year, and to carry the Olympic Torch. I am the recent author of 'Business Funding for Dummies' (Wiley), Jan 2016, and of articles, interviews, panel discussions and round table input. I balance my finance life, with a lot of fitness and spreading the word of good health and a happy mind and body. This includes teaching fitness and weight management classes, as well as being a brand ambassador for health and beauty brands on shopping telly, both in the UK and abroad.
