A day in the life of the Managing Director
Here at TGDH we have the privilege of working with our wonderful Managing Director Michelle! She's got a million things to do so I was grateful she had the time to answer a few of my questions.
So, what're you working on at the moment?
A million things as always which I love. My main things right now though are working with the account development teams looking at new sectors for TGDH to get their teeth into. I am also quite involved with client presentations for the online element of TGDH.
It's awesome that you're so involved with your team, what made you want to become the Managing Director?
I never set out to become an MD but more organically grew into the position across the years. I have covered many positions across the years including finance and commercial management and so it is quite an obvious progression. I am naturally organised or bossy as my husband and children tell me so I really enjoy the variety and challenges that an overarching position brings.
Haha well, we think you're doing a great job! What's the biggest challenge of being the MD?
Probably the fact that there is so much to be done every day, I need to always focus on time management as my day is so varied and needs attention in a lot of areas. I always start and end the day with a priority list, oh and tea, lot’s of tea!
Tea is life! Now everyones' burning question, if you weren't the MD of TGDH, what would you be doing?!
Ooh there’s a question, ideal world sat in a house in France enjoying a glass of red but back to reality I always fancied being a primary school teacher or a forensics scientist, bit random I know!
Michelle always finishes what she puts her mind too, but doesn't mind having a laugh or two along the way!
And on top of everything else, Michelle always has time to help the team with queries and concerns!
