Pro Tip

Be completely honest with your senior, whether it's telling some hard truths or owning up to a mistake you made.


My area of expertise is UK Government, but I am also a great sounding board so always happy to help talk through ideas.


I am new to the Chief of Staff gig, so seeking support, guidance and a network of like-minded people to lean on and share ideas.
