Andrew Winterburn, global business director at Ashfield Meetings & Events, said: "We are really excited to finally have Rebecca in her new role. She has a huge amount of experience to bring to the position that we are confident is going to add value to both our business and client projects."

Shipley added: "I’ve been interested in research since education and took on my first research role at university as an assistant to one of my lecturers.

"I really enjoy trying to get to the root of the issue at hand, understanding why things work, why people behave the way that they do, how we can react differently and try and anticipate changes that are coming.

"I am really excited to start working more closely with the business development team and to really get under the skin of our current and potential clients."
