Before lockdown, our Principal, Louise Woollard, spoke to Topic UK about what she gets up to when she’s not at work.
Of course, things are a little different at the moment, but when things are a bit more ‘normal’, here’s how she spends her time out of the office…
You arrive home on Friday night after a busy week. What’s the first thing you do?
I’m a huge football fan, so I get my Premier League Fantasy Football team in order.
It’s time for the weekend. What are we most likely to find you doing, and where?
If there’s a Huddersfield Town game on, you’ll find me at the John Smith’s stadium cheering the team on – I’ve been supporting them since I was a little girl!
Saturday night arrives. What’s your idea of the perfect way to spend it?
I love being active and keeping fit, so my evenings often involve something sporty like hitting the gym or going to a personal training session. I also love to cook and socialise with friends, and I enjoy playing the dinner host.
It’s Sunday already. What tasks are usually on your ‘to-do’ list?
At some point, I’ll definitely be heading outdoors for a long walk with my wonderful golden-doodle, Otis. However, I’m also partial to a spot of baking, so I’ll probably have my apron on and be making some treats to take into the office tomorrow.
Work again tomorrow. Do you get the Sunday blues or look forward to getting back – and why?
I love my job, so there are no Sunday blues in sight – I always look forward to getting back into the office and seeing what the week has in store.
I’m also very much a people person, so being a financial adviser is perfect. On a daily basis, I get to help people to find a long-term solution that meets their needs and supports them in living financially happier lives.
The weekend’s almost over. What’s the last thing you do before you hit the hay ahead of another week?
I love having a tidy mind, so you’ll find me writing a list of priorities for the coming day. Organisation is key, as it helps me stay structured and means I can plan my weeks effectively.
