Customers and stakeholders genuinely value her opinion

Anna’s contribution to our customer relationships can’t be over-emphasised. For three years she led the Great Britain & Ireland nutrition strategy with McDonald’s which realised commercial benefits for both companies, be it guiding McDonald’s Supplier Nutrition Forum, the building of trust scores or the push to remove sugar from beverages ahead of the sugar levy. Anna adds value and authority to the debate with a cool head and fact-based approach. Customers and stakeholders genuinely value her opinion.

A wealth of commercial brand experience

Anna brings deep nutrition knowledge and a wealth of commercial brand experience together. This means she’s able to offer a perspective on what’s right for consumers, stakeholders and the business. Anna valued a partnership approach, encouraged fresh thinking and was always a pleasure to work with.

Strong leadership and influencing skills

Anna Chaired the UK Nutritionists in Industry (NII) group for two consecutive terms in office, during which time Anna always went above and beyond the requirements of this role.

Through strong leadership and influencing skills, Anna was instrumental in shaping current NII ways of working, including making important revisions to our constitution to meet with the changing times, better networking and engagement with key stakeholders, the creation of more streamlined processes for meeting organisation, time management and delivery to best meet member needs.

Furthermore, during her time as Chair, Anna never missed a meeting and chaired each and every event. Having worked with Anna previously on a joint nutrition project during her role at Coca-Cola and mine at the British Nutrition Foundation; as a fellow committee member, but also as a friend; knowing how diligent, committed and hard-working Anna is I have no hesitation in recommending her further.

Nutrition knowledge and expertise

I really enjoyed working with Anna during her time at Coca-Cola. She did an excellent job in bringing nutrition knowledge and expertise into the Coca-Cola business – presenting and explaining complex information in an understandable way to different audiences including commercial teams and our customers.
