Lauren Brown

Job title
Head of Customer Experience and Project Delivery

Motivational Quote
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible” – Walt Disney

Why you love your job
My role is incredibly varied between structure around project delivery to working in a more reactive manner through Customer Experience, so every day is most definitely different! I love being able to make a difference and working on strategic initiatives whilst assisting customers to achieve their own defined projects through controlled delivery. With the variety I get the opportunity to speak to people from many walks of life and there is always someone to learn from!

What 3 things would you want stranded on an island?
I read every day so assuming I could find an electrical source I would have to say my Kindle! My sunglasses and a bit too sensible but a swiss army knife to help survival

If you could invite just 1 person, dead or alive for dinner who would it be?
Tony Robbins an American author, coach, motivational speaker, and philanthropist or Simon Sinek who is a British-American author and inspirational speaker.

Favourite song?
This one is REALLY hard, as I love most genres of music. But ‘Shut and Dance’ by Walk the Moon never fails to put a smile on my face and cheer me up.

Job title
Managing Director

Motivational Quote
The mantra that I live by is that if you can’t be the best at something always strive to be the best you can be.

Why you love your job
This is one job that allows you to oversee and have input into every aspect of the business. My background has always been operational, so becoming MD gave me the opportunity to learn about other parts of the business that I was less familiar with. Every day is an education, it’s a challenging, sometimes lonely, but an extremely fulfilling role.

What 3 things would you want stranded on an island?
Sun cream (I burn under a 100w light), Sky TV and a fishing rod.

If you could invite just 1 person, dead or alive for dinner who would it be?
Peter Kay (Bolton funny man).

Favourite song?
I have an eclectic taste in music but I’d go for All the things that I’ve done (The Killers) or Way Down (Elvis Presley)

“Whatever you are, be a good one.” ― Abraham Lincoln

Why you love your job
I like the fact that my role is incredibly diverse, but made so much easier by having a great team around me.

What 3 things would you want stranded on an island?
A hammock, box of matches and an everlasting glass of rum punch.

If you could invite just 1 person, dead or alive for dinner who would it be?
Marcelo Bielsa, manager and savour of Leeds United.

Favourite song?
Has to be Smokey Robinson ‘Tears of a Clown’.
