A bit of a property veteran, I joined EG in London in the mid-90s when the industry was picking itself up from the crash at the start of the decade. I've worked on both news and features and was around in the early days of EGi - when many people questioned whether there was really demand for internet news!
It's been fascinating to see the industry develop and the way people within the industry communicate. New media is certainly now being well embraced by a new generation of property professionals, which is great to see, but the importance of face to face contact within the industry should never be forgotten, which is why I make it my business to see individuals personally whenever I can.
Outside of work I'm a traveller at heart. I've visited places as diverse as Bangkok, Hong Kong, Lapland, New York, Hawaii and Australia (my spiritual home, where I spent a year working). Since I relocated out of London with my husband five years ago my travelling has been more 'virtual', though I still criss-cross the UK for EG - I don't think there are many major cities or UK islands I haven't been to now!
By the way this is me presenting an EG award, not receiving it!
