Clare Morrow

Chief Executive Officer

To feed my soul and to relax, I share good food and wine with my fantastic friends and family; and long weekend walks in all weathers with mucky dogs. I’m obsessed with finding great coffee! I love renovating houses, taking inspiration from art, architecture and travel to new places and old; and to stay grounded and tranquil, I bend myself into unfeasible shapes with regular yoga – ommmm….

John Gidman

Director of Communication and Training

I know this sounds sad, but one of my passions in life is my work! Helping to transform boring ‘death by PowerPoint’ pharmaceutical meetings into enjoyable & memorable experiences. I am football mad and support an interesting team – Liverpool FC! Food, drink and films complete my interests.

Christina Gilbert

Head of Client Services

I love to travel with my family and planning last minute adventures with my son especially searching out the local cheese shop.

Glenn Burns

Head of Finance

I am a dad of 3 grown up children, who are all making their way in the big wide world. I am sports mad and follow most sports, except those that involve animal participation. Love to travel, walk, eat and drink with my wife, family and friends.

Donna Connor

Company Administrator

Having travelled and lived abroad, I’ve finally settled in Marlow with my two children. I’m intrigued by different cultures and languages – would love to visit India at some point. I’m very much into cruising on the high seas at the moment, and my partner is always on the look out for our next trip. I enjoy going out to any one of the fab restaurants on our doorstep here in Marlow, or on a girlie night out on the town – the heels are a killer these days though! Oh, and I can’t function without having had my cuppa in the mornings!

Karen Clark

Data Analyst

When I’m not with my family or friends, walking my dog or taking Body Pump classes, I’ll be found either on the DIY (my friends bought me a chop saw for my birthday!) or watching my football mad, Manchester City supporting children from the sidelines.

Emma Buchanan

Client Services

When I’m not in the office I’ll usually be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm! I love spicy food so curries are definitely my signature dishes. And what better to accompany them than a large glass of something cold!

Sophie Braithwaite

Team Leader, Registration and Project Coordination

Out of the office, I am on or under the water. I love scuba diving and travel the world looking for the next best dive site! Otherwise, you’ll find me attempting to cook, spending time with friends and binge watching Netflix.

Abigail Bowden

Associate Project Manager

Whilst travelling the world I enjoy seeking out the best of local food and wine! During the winter months, I can be found heading up to the mountains for a skiing holiday.

Rosie Faretta

Project Coordinator

I love all creative culture, whether it involves going to see live music or getting hooked on the latest TV dramas, film or book, and I especially enjoy exploring new places too. I spend many a weekend visiting friends in London, or spending time outdoors; running, walking my dog, and even water-sports. I’m slowly attempting to master windsurfing and sailing, but I’d also love to give surfing a go too.

Michelle Firth

Registrations Coordinator

I have a wonderful family and great friends, whom I love spending time with. My passion is baking and playing darts, but I try not to do them at the same time as it tends to get a bit messy…!!! I am always on the hunt for a good bargain and you’ll find me surfing the net most days.

Mystique Offer

Project Manager

I have a passion for travel; seeing beautiful places and absorbing as much of the culture as possible. I love to play and watch sport, in particular rugby, and going on long solitary walks. In my spare time I also like to participate in charity work and be part of a team making a difference. Spending my time with my loved ones and fur-babies is also a must. When I’m not “running around” participating in activities, I love to read a good book, listen to music and enjoy a good glass of red wine….or two…or three…..

Nikki Stratford

Registrations Coordinator

I am a real home body with a passion for crafting and cooking. A log fire and hot chocolate on a wintry day after a long dog walk with knitting or crochet in hand is my true relaxation, although a glass of red or two wouldn’t be turned down!

Natalie Clarke

Project Coordinator

I love being outdoors, whether it be walking the dog or being at the stables. I play this weird sport called Horseball, which is essentially netball on horseback – always a great conversation starter! I love to travel and have a mission to collect a postcard from every museum or gallery I visit.

Ema Pavel

Project Manager

I am a “retired” singer and an unapologetic shopaholic! I adore French bulldogs, interior design and bottomless brunches. My passions include fashion, make up and judging people’s outfits at weddings…. “Karaoke” is the key word if you are trying to befriend me. I love travelling the world and learning about different cultures, organising memorable parties and helping my parents with their small charity in Romania, which offers assistance to children and senior citizens living in poverty.

Claire Ellis

Senior Project Manager

Whilst I started my career in Hong Kong organising trade fairs across Asia, it seemed only fitting to return to the UK (and its great weather) and to continue to find a way to escape. Once upon a time, I could be found on or under the water (sailing and scuba diving), whereas now, in no particular order, my life revolves around gin, Yoga, dog walks, travel, gin, family, swimming, girl guides, gin……….

Terri Ferguson

Senior Project Manager

My passion is travelling and exploring all corners of the world, soaking up host cultures and tasting local culinary delights. When I am not travelling with work, I love nothing more than spending time with my wonderful family and friends – including my fur-babies, dragging them (friends not fur-babies) on long cycle rides, ending of course in a country pub with lunch.

Margot Warner

Senior Project Manager

As I spent most of my youth in Australia, I have a passion for travel and adventure. My most recent trip was taking part in a 100km group charity walk in the Sahara Desert with camels as support and company! In the past I have taken part in a round-the-world yacht race, which involved sailing around Cape Horn. As a qualified nurse I still have a very keen interest in all things medical. I also love road cycling, open water swimming and every year I look forward to walking a section of the South West Coast path with my other half and some good friends.
