My specialist areas are all aspects of finance, accountancy, tax, treasury and business. I have also written on a diverse range of topics including management, gamification, online investing, outsourcing (for a special supplement in The Times) and stress. I take a lot of interest in diversity and inclusion issues and I write a lot about careers. Besides editorial work, I undertake a range of corporate assignments including writing white papers, reports and content marketing articles for FTSE companies and large professional services firms. I produced a paper on addressing the gender gap for EY, which was presented at Davos in January 2016. I have written a book on getting to the top in finance, which will be published by Bloomsbury in 2017.
