A 60 second quick fire round with our wonderful UK Group CEO, Sharon Whale.
What was your first job?
My first ever job was a Saturday job on the record counter of Woolworths when I was 14… rocking along to Madonna’s Holiday! Brilliant job, loved it! But my first real job was at American Express in the Direct Marketing Department running Member get Member and supplementary card sales. It is where I got my love of CRM and agency world!
What are best and worst pieces of advice you’ve ever had?
- You can do anything you set your mind to do but you have to commit

Which gadget can’t you live without?
My fitbit… 10,000 steps a day without fail
What’s your perfect day off?
- 5 star hotel breakfast, walk in the county, a couple of hours in the spa and a big roast dinner with my husband or
- A day on the beach with my girls just hanging with my lovely family
Which 3 traits define you?
What’s your favorite ’90s jam?
Handbag house music – anything that I can sing along to
Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?
A bit of both but if pushed – hunter
What was the last gift you gave someone?
Squishes – the latest fad for girls aged 5-11 everywhere!
What inspires you?
Bravery and change in all its forms – the ability to forge a new path and believe in it even if it seems hard.
Any advice for your previous boss?
Nothing. He was brilliant and a big influence on who I am now
