26 January 2021

From ‘FOMO’ and Prosecco to mountain climbing and Aretha Franklin – get to know more about Laura, as we play ’21 questions’…

1. In 40 words or less, describe your role at Fortus

As a Client Service Manager based in the York office, I’m responsible for establishing, developing and maintaining service excellence to a diverse portfolio of clients, whilst remaining hands-on alongside the team, preparing accounts, tax and business advice to clients.


2. Which of our Fortus values resonates most with you and why?

Courageous – I’m not afraid to step out of my comfort zone and put my hand up for something that may not come naturally to me initially, but is something I can learn from and will help me to grow.


3. What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

My family – for raising me to believe anything’s possible, if you work hard enough to achieve it.


4. What’s on your playlist right now?

“Alexa, play Aretha Franklin!”


5. What’s the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it?

Bridgerton – I had major ‘FOMO’ (Fear Of Missing Out) and it didn’t disappoint. Ladies of Fortus, I’m sure you’ll stand with me on this one!


6. Best book you’ve ever read?

Vex King – Good Vibes, Good Life.


7. If you could time warp yourself to any point in history, when would it be, who would you hang out with?

I’d rewind to my younger self and relive those special family moments.


8. What superpower would you want and why?

To be invisible…in order to get backstage at the best concerts!


9. What’s your biggest inspiration?

The kind of people who can open a bottle of Prosecco just for one glass.


10. What’s on your bucket list?

To climb Mount Kilimanjaro!


11. If you could live in a foreign country, where would it be?

On the Amalfi Coast, Italy – where it’s acceptable to eat pizza and pasta every mealtime!


12. Describe your perfect day?

Outside of work, my favourite kind of days are spent at 2000ft, climbing mountains and exploring the outdoors. If the route planning was left to me, there’d always be a nice country pub to kick off the walking boots at, and enjoy a well-earned glass of Prosecco, afterwards!
