I’m Verity and I’m an Account Manager at Speakers Corner. It’s a fascinating job as it allows me to meet and listen to experts in all kinds of fields. I also learn so much everyday about the various industries of our clients.
As part of my degree in French and German, I worked in Paris for a year. When I wasn’t eating croissants, cycling along the Seine or living up to any number of other French stereotypes, I was working in a small office pairing English language teachers with Parisian families.
After this, I worked with some very cool tech start-ups, and now that I'm in London I bring my match-making skills, experience working in small and passionate teams, and baked-goods-eating prowess to my role at Speakers Corner.
There are few things that make me happier than skiing on fresh snow on a sunny day. As that is somewhat tricky in London, I spend my time swing dancing, cooking up exciting meals and exploring London’s many cultural offerings.
