The Competitor

Name a sport and Poppy has probably tried her hand at it. Growing up with her family in Hertfordshire, England, Poppy played nearly everything, namely tag rugby, netball, cricket, and lacrosse. She found a specific passion for lacrosse and pursued it throughout college. It is that experience with team sports that cultivated the team first mentality she exudes in the workplace now. Whether it’s her former lacrosse team or her Acertitude team, Poppy thrives in settings where teammates celebrate each other’s successes.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. Winston Churchill

Poppy is a project coordinator in Acertitude’s London office. She supports leadership searches for organizations across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia by applying her effective planning, strong communication, and dynamic prioritization skills. Delivering beyond results and efficiency, her team spirit and attitude add up to a superb experience for everyone involved.

Before pivoting into executive search, Poppy was a supporter care executive at the Ruth Strauss Foundation, a charity providing professional emotional support to families facing the death of a parent. Additionally, she has held varied roles in administration and events. This includes serving as events coordinator for the Groucho Club, the world-renowned arts and media private members club based in Soho, London.

Poppy holds both her master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Nottingham, where she studied history. She completed her dissertation on the U.K. government’s World War II evacuation plan. While earning her degree, Poppy played on the women’s lacrosse team, serving as the social secretary for the Women’s Lacrosse Society during her second year.

Poppy currently resides in London. Naturally inclined to sports, Poppy starts her weekend mornings at yoga or the gym. In the evenings, she enjoys time with friends and an occasional gin and tonic.
