Our Business is Growing Yours
The people behind your success
Greatest success in recruitment: Being asked to open a recruitment office in Chicago at the age of 26 and helping to grow a company to meet their vision and goals from 22 staff to 36 over the course of 18 months (and all staff are still there and doing brilliantly).
Most embarrassing moment: Stepping on Elton John’s big toe. If you want to know the rest of the story, you’ll have to buy me lunch.
Favourite food spot: OXO Brasserie, London. I took my mum there for Mother’s Day and the combination of jazz, fine food and great company made it a fantastic place for lunch. Swiftly followed by Brasserie Ruhlmann in Rockefeller Plaza, Manhattan and again, my mum and I went there on our trip to NYC.
Famous for: Being the first female football commentator with BBC Radio and also doing voiceovers for Capital Radio, London from the age of 14.

Greatest recruitment success
I’ve supported more than 150 golf clubs to find the right general manager during my three years preceeding joining the YPP team.
Most embarrassing moment
I’m giving you two embarrassing moments… you decide which is the most embarrassing!
a) The unknowingly provocative offer of a biscuit to the training lead in a highly sensitive learning environment involving military personnel. (I still blush).
b) As the busy train pulled out of London Marylebone Station, I headed through the crowd for the ‘facilities’ at the other end of the carriage. As I manoeuvered past people packed in with standing room only, how they were dressed told me they’d been at the rugby all day.
So, as I did what needed to be done, the toilet door began to unexpectedly slide open on its arc before I was ready…
The cheer and applause from the rugby fans (while I grappled with my modesty) was probably the funniest and most embarrassing moment of my life!
a or b? Answers on a postcard!
Favourite food is without doubt the mighty roast potato, especially the ones made by Mum.

Recruitment Career Success: Well, if you take being part of the Your People Partners team aside, then it would the success I have had building and developing relationships with both candidates and clients who have gone on to grow some of their business’s to be global successes.
Most embarrassing moment: On day 3 of moving to Spain to play football in Gibraltar, I lost my passport (you require ID to get in and out of Gibraltar)… I, therefore, had to smuggle my way back into Gibraltar to visit the Embassy or it was a 4-hour journey to Malaga! If Immigration Control is reading this, I am sorry, I didn’t cause any harm.
Favourite Food: Has to be Pizza… although I do make a very good Homemade Crispy Shredded Beef.
I know what you’re thinking:
‘what’s the recipe?’… nice try it’s a Robinson specialty.
Famous For: My Homemade Crispy Shredded Beef… see, you’re even more intrigued now!
