Shona Read is half Australian, half Malaysian and grew up moving across Europe, Middle East and Australiasia. Shona has been lucky enough to live in a ridiculous number of cities and as part of her studies was able to work with big companies like Deloitte and IBM but also startups and smaller independent agencies. Shona moved to London in 2013 and has been with PHD ever since.

Where did you study and how did that help mould your career choices?

I studied all over! I moved around a lot growing up and I now love travelling… which is probably why I’m here in London.  Before this, I did a CEMS Masters in Business Management which basically allowed me to take 3 semesters in 3 different countries.  I was still not sure what I wanted to do and figured what better way to do that than to travel more with some added learning.
