Member of the month
Sheila Nortley
Screenwriter/Producer, Emineo Films
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is that it is really not as much of a job as it is an extension of me. I get to create what I want, talk about what I want and express myself in a medium which I love. It also challenges me and allows me to grow and develop each day.
If you could give one piece of advice to yourself at the start of your career what would it be?
It won’t be easy but it will be possible. Don’t give up!
What is an act of kindness that you will remember forever?
My mum every single day of her life. I can’t list the endless acts of kindness and love she has shown me and I hope to be able to repay her somehow in some way.
What is your favourite quote?
“The way of the miracle-worker is to see all human behaviour as one two things: either love or a call for love.” Marianne Williamson
If you could invite two people to dinner (dead or alive!) who would they be and why?
My school friend Aisha. We shared a lot of good memories together growing up and despite our busy schedules there are some things we should talk about whilst we have still the opportunity. Another person would be Victoria Climbie so that I could give her a cuddle.

Dr Lindsay Ip
Principal Clinical Psychologist, King's Health Partners
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is being able to facilitate change in people's hearts and minds and breaking down barriers between people so that the collective power of a diverse group can be realised. This happens on many levels. Clinically, I see clients who range from those with severe mental and physical illness to senior executives trying to strive under uncertainty and complexity. On a group level, I offer process consultation and education and training to about a thousand healthcare professionals to enable them to be more resilient and more confident in joining up mental and physical healthcare. On a systemic level, I also work to change structures, processes and organisational culture.

What is the best part of your job?
I really enjoy working in a global team and getting to interact with people from all over the world on a daily basis. Working with a diverse group of people is the best part of my job to me.
Louise Terry
Communications Consultant and Deputy Chair of the Royal Institution
What is the best part of your job?
Working in communications means working at the heart of an organisation, bringing out the best of it and identifying and working to strengthen its weaknesses. It is a demanding but satisfying role and I think the variety and exposure to different teams and activities are the best part.
