As former Head of PR and Communications for Good Energy, Sophy designed and implemented successful communications strategies across the full range of media – including national and specialist press, broadcast and social media.
As a broadcast journalist for international news agency Reuters, she regularly interviewed high-profile politicians and business leaders and reported on major events including G8 summits and the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. Before that she headed the Chicago Bureau for Women's Wear Daily, the bible for the international fashion industry.
