There she helped set up a multi-disciplinary brand strategy and insight offer, having progressed from Omnicom/DAS’ Accelerate Graduate Management Programme where she worked across 7 agencies across 16 months – ultimately giving her an invaluable insight into all the skills and aspects involved in building great global brands.
