After seven years she felt confined by dealing solely in figures and moved into investor relations where she advised clients on their communications with the stock market, and then moved in-house in industry. Her last corporate role was as Group Director, Corporate Affairs at Rexam plc, a multi-national packaging company with an annual turnover of c. £4 billion and with 8,000 employees.
