  8. How have you seen the Automotive industry landscape change and evolve to engage more women? Sytner do not judge based on gender or any other category, if you have an A for attitude, demonstrate a strong work ethic and are honest I have found you are not limited by length of service, qualifications or gender as examples you are given the freedom to grow and progress and this is promoted across the businesses.

  9. Top tip for how you organise your days? It’s very basic, but have a to-do list and tick off each item once done. It helps to put things into order, and gives clear direction on the day.

  10. Top tip for working in the automotive industry? The automotive industry is like any other, it’s not about the product you sell or the service we provide. It’s about the people around you and the ethos we enjoy and celebrate. A successful business is nothing without its people
