Annie Why did you join Business Data Partners (BDP)?

I liked the idea of the challenges which comes with joining a growing company and the opportunities that lay in front of me; I knew I would have a greater presence and be able to get involved in shaping the business going forward.

What social and community events have you been involved with?

I have helped to organise several team building activities and networking events for the company including a ‘Can you escape’ evening to help bond the team. I feel activities like this are extremely important within a company to keep everyone involved and connected.

How do you use your degree in your role?

I studied International Business with French.  On a recent project, I was able to put my marketing expertise to the test by providing the client innovative alternatives to current procedures and in doing so I increased my stakeholder management skills. It’s great to be able to put into practice what I learned at University.

When you are not working, what do you like to do in your spare time?

I am an Irish dancer and perform around the country. It has been a passion of mine since I was 7! I have also recently got into running and training with my PT at the gym which I have found very addictive!
