General Counsel and Chief Sustainability Officer at Audley Travel

I am the General Counsel and Chief Sustainability Officer at Audley Travel, a tailor-made travel business. Since joining the business, I have supported the expansion of its ESG commitments and developed strategies further to embed ESG into business operations and employee culture. This has included helping the business to achieve B-Corp status in May 2023 and launching the Responsible Choice initiative which encourages clients to consider the environmental impact of their travel. Before joining Audley, I spent 12 years practising as a private equity corporate lawyer at Ropes and Gray and Travers Smith, working closely with private equity houses and portfolio companies including several travel businesses.


Winning the award was a great honour, and the whole team has celebrated having our efforts acknowledged. I would wholeheartedly recommend that any business or individual committed to making DE&I improvements enter these awards as the pride we feel in being recognised for our work is immense and motivating. These awards are not only a validation of our efforts but also an inspiration to continue striving for a more inclusive and equitable world.
