In the beginning – A personal note from Andrea – our founder
I got the bug for working with people very early on. One of my first Saturday jobs was working at Harrods in Knightsbridge. What an extraordinary experience to be one of thousands of people working in the same building trying to deliver excellent customer service. But as I later discovered, encouraging people to do their best every day was a not insignificant challenge.
Eventually, I knew that working with people was the thing that I most wanted to do. I held a number of roles in learning and development, management development, organisational development and latterly, HR, and discovered that good people practices, a positive culture, and great leadership and management could help create teams of people who had fun, worked hard, and delivered great results.
