Danielle Phillips, founder at Inside Out communications, BA (Hons) European Business and French, 2005
This summer marks 15 years since I graduated from Liverpool and started my marketing and communications career here in the UK. Four years and a global recession later, I packed my bags and headed for Australia. Initially, the plan was to travel but I quickly fell in love with the country and decided to stay.
During my nine years 'down under' I headed up global communications teams in major companies in the logistics and banking sectors before moving back to the UK in late 2018 with my family. I now run Inside Out Communications Consulting, a boutique employee communication and engagement consultancy, and I'm about to complete my MBA at Durham University.
