I have been living here in Thailand, with my husband and two children, since 2013 when I took up the role as Managing Director of DiageoMoetHennessy Thailand. 
It was a privilege to lead this amazing team and be the custodians of one of Thailand’s most admired brands, Johnnie Walker. I have had an amazing twenty-year career with the Diageo group that has seen me work in every continent, experiencing start-ups to mature markets, leading strategy, customer marketing and commercial organisations. Prior to taking the position in Thailand I led Diageo’s global leadership development programmes, embedding sustainable leadership practices into our performance culture. Since October this year I have been working on my own venture that will launch later this year and continue to support British Thai business relations as an advisor, coach and mentor.
