ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview of Gabrielle Gardner, MD, Star Consulting. They are a training services company, so we identify, source and implement training for corporate customers. Her role is basically to run the company, so it's a combination of finance, business development and staff management things. She did business studies at university, and then, when she left, she went to work for a company that ran conference centers, doing telesales. She really enjoy working in training because they are helping them to develop as people and learn new skills. The IT industry is also one of the fastest moving sectors, and it can be exciting to know about new technologies before friends. There was no opportunity to progress very far. One might have to go from counseling someone who's had a bad weekend to a financial or strategy meeting to seeing a client, and not everyone can do that. The whole fact that Star Consulting has grown from zero to a £ 1m turnover business in less than three years.
