Being a St Just girl with huge love and passion for Cornwall, Olivia has grown up, lived and worked in the county for most of her life. Her big passion in life is supporting and developing people to be the best that they can be, and doing this for UCP, she feels, is the best job she’s ever had.
Growing up as part of the creative environment that saturates Cornwall and working closely with and in the talented creative industries businesses in the county has always been an integral to Olivia.
She has worked with established and start-up businesses in Cornwall for the past seven years, specialising in training and one-to-one support for those working within the creative sector through her role at Creative Skills as a Creative Industries Consultant and now at UCP as creative BDM.
Olivia has an MA Honours degree in Social Anthropology and Art History as well as 7 years teaching and training experience following her PGCE from the University of Exeter and ILM 5 Leadership and Management.
Olivia is a creative person herself; she plays cello and sings as part of the renowned 50 Degrees Choir as well as painting and illustrating in her spare time. Olivia also loves cycling, walking and swimming and is completely obsessed with her black Labrador.
