From winning the Rugby World Cup, to FTSE 100 Director to life in the Highlands – interview with Genevieve Shore

Genevieve talks about winning the Women’s Rugby World cup in 1994 and the challenge of playing amateur sport at the highest level whilst building a career.

She speaks about her rise to Chief Information Officer at Pearson Plc in a time when there were few female FTSE 100 Directors. She shares her wisdom around people management, how small breaks can ‘lift’ the trajectory of a life, the importance of mentors, the ‘generosity gene’, the madness of the corporate world and working out what is ‘enough’. Fast forward to now when she lives in the Highlands running her property and food and wine business and holds a number of Non Executive Director roles, including the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

Finally, Genevieve shares her best money purchase for around £30 and her Money Pearls of Wisdom and asks how we can ease the fear of ageing and loneliness.
Sit back, grab yourself an espresso (or drink of your choice!) and enjoy the conversation.
