Isabelle read MML at Trinity and worked for Morgan Grenfell (now Deutsche Bank) in the City afterwards. After a few years she went to INSEAD for an MBA and worked in Paris as a management consultant then a fund manager.
She returned to London with three children, a fourth was born there and consequently never went back to paid work. She stayed in London for 18 years, followed by a few years in Singapore. When out there she became a guide in two museums, which she thoroughly enjoyed.
She is now following a course in executive coaching at INSEAD, and has been living in Brussels since September 2018.
