Meet the C&IT A List 2017

Heather joined Ashfield straight out of university and in six years she has progressed from an entry-level position to a director role.

Boss says: "Heather's experience and knowledge, aligned with her account development and people skills, have been instrumental in achieving growth across her client accounts. It has been great to watch her career grow with us," says Nicola Burns, global managing director.

Best project I've worked on: Last May we worked with a client who had a box in the royal area for The Queen's 90th birthday. It was such an extraordinary event.

Most challenging moment: I got called upon to assist with an event in the Bahamas at short notice, which is a difficult destination to work in logistically. The amount of times I had to be on site during the course of a month was challenging.

Dream client: I would love to take a client on an incentive to Iceland to go whale watching and see the Northern Lights.

Alternative career: I'd open a pub called 'Paws and Pints'. People would come in for a pint while we groomed their dogs.

Goals before 40: To continue being challenged and to help mentor more people within the company.
