Most interesting achievement

I was persuaded by friends to test out a new bungee jump into the river Nile in Uganda while they calibrated rope stretch.  They didn’t have it correct and I was dunked up to my waist into crocodile infested waters and ended up with two black eyes.

Best Cleaning tip

Dwell time – give the product enough time to actually work as it is supposed to.

Best part of working in the DCBN

Watching the massive changes that we make to the whole industry and to individuals.  My favourite campaign has been the price awareness campaign to educate cleaners about their prices and costs.  We have been influential in mindset shifts that prices are based on covering costs not just comparing to competitors.

Why the domestic cleaning industry is awesome 

The people genuinely care about everyone, it is such a warm friendly environment.

Since 2008 I have set up and now own 2 cleaning businesses, built a property portfolio, set up and manage a letting agency and a property developments business and most recently my own business coaching practice. And of course, I’ve also helped to set up and run the DCBN!

In my spare time, I can be found sitting by my swimming pool at our home in France, spending time with friends and family, or perhaps taking a visit to the local lake for a walk and a picnic with my husband. Or in winter I’ll be mostly snuggled up watching a good horror movie by the fire with the lights off.

My favourite cleaning tip is to hire a great cleaning service and let the professionals do it!

The best part of working in the DCBN is the community we’ve created and the difference we are making to cleaning business owners throughout the UK.

The domestic cleaning industry is awesome because people working in it get paid to have a workout, clients get to enjoy a clean home and as a business owner it can fit well around family life and be a great way to make a living. Its mostly just awesome because of the people in it though!

Really had to reach for an interesting one. I’ve sang on songs of praise.

Best Cleaning tip

Never comb fur rugs, blow dry on high heat in small circular motions or always clean from top to bottom

Best part of working in the DCBN

Frequently learning new things from members, directors and partners that I would have never known if not for this experience.

Why the domestic cleaning industry is awesome

The industry is full of passionate and hard working people, it’s inspiring.
