Having graduated with a Master’s I went on to work for the BBC, and subsequently doing Marketing and Events for a University, before walking into lighting with the promise that I would love it. 15 years later I can confirm that’s true! I’ve since managed industry exhibitions, worked for the press, and headed up Marketing teams for global businesses before starting Parrot in 2017. I’ve not once looked back 😊
