What was your first job? I worked as a Project Manager at Nortel Networks straight out of university in 1995, where I was responsible for the phased expansion of International Operators fixed line networks across Europe. My first graduate role was a great introduction to the world of working within a multinational and taught me about working with multi-cultural teams across geographies. I was lucky to have entered the telecoms sector at a time of deregulation and was exposed to US operators expanding into Europe as well as a fast paced, results focused working environment. Those formative years gave me the foundations of a work ethic that still drives me today.
