Sales Operations and Lead Generation at Speechmatics

About me

I studied Archaeology at the University of Cambridge, graduating in 2015. Turning my mind to new challenges, I worked both as a rowing coach and as a freelance photographer & web designer. Over this period I have been involved in a number of small-scale startup projects.

My current position in the speech technology scaleup Speechmatics sees me working to help the commercial team scale more effectively as the company grows, where I have the opportunity to discover and build relationships with new customers.
