Best bits: coastline or hill walking, cycling till I drop, theatre or film that make me think. Making a difference. Inspired by the engineering, beauty and sheer inventiveness of the natural world.

Having had far too much fun launching perfumery brands, Account Directing for the coolest agency in the West End, and as International PR Co-Ordinator for a Swiss based global brand, and then a serious stint in the Public Affairs hot seat, Collette left the Smoke and relocated lock stock and two small kids to Hadrian’s Wall Country. The children have grown and flown and the agency she founded is still her baby.

Switched on and socially aware, Amy is tuned in to whatever is happening on Facebook, in the Twittersphere and online anywhere.
