Laura Linsell

Executive Assistant

07761 199722

A long association with Martin led me to join the herd. I have been working with Elephants Child for three years now and loving my role as Executive Assistant.

Having worked in the hair and beauty industry for 40 years as a stylist then later roles as hostess and front of house, I consider myself a people person with extensive experience in management and event planning.

I have a great understanding of people and a very good listener.

In my spare time I travel and enjoy reading. Family values are extremely important, I consider myself forever conscientious and a caring soul.

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe."

"Mould-breaking strategies grow initially like weeds, they are not cultivated like tomatoes in a hothouse.… (They) can take root in all kinds of places."

"Strategy is the great work of the organisation. In situations of life and death, it is the Tao of Survival or Extinction. Its study cannot be neglected."

"Everyone has a plan... until they get punched in the mouth."
