Meet the team

Alison Ettridge

Chief Believer (CEO)

Alison is our CEO and Chief Believer -  living the entrepreneurs dream! Alison loves helping HR Directors take data and insight to the Board to validate their views;  helping them to convince their leaders (turning them into Believers!). Alison has spent twenty plus years in the world of people and talent – from her first job (with our colleague Dom as her boss!) in executive recruitment, to sales at monster.com and then into the world of talent research and intelligence, which was where she spotted the opportunity for Stratigens – to bridge the gap between strategy and execution with data.

Alison enjoys leading the amazing TI team who all have a passion to change the way people view the workforce and workplace. Her passion is knowing that we are genuinely driving change in our clients' organisations for the better and doing it with data. The team all have curious minds and Alison loves the challenge that brings. Alison is in charge of bringing us all on the journey from start up to small business and now scaling, helping us to understand what's changing and what matters – and coupling this with the importance of remembering why we're doing this (the Belief thing just won't go away).

When she’s not leading the charge at TI, Alison has the most gorgeous (and patient) husband and an amazing little girl and a variety of different four-legged creatures who keep her busy. Weekends are spent on the back of a horse or hauling a fat pony with a child on around!

Alan Glass

Chief Money Manager (COO)

At Talent Intuition, Alan is in charge of giving us budgets, support and guidance to make things happen so that the team can grow and develop without being micro-managed.

Alan’s background is in engineering consultancy which is took on straight after graduation, followed by 30 years in the software and services sector in various management, consultancy and founder roles. Most recently, Alan was the co-founder and MD of an IT services business which later floated on the AIM market.

Laura Turner

Head of our Client Friends & Deliverers

Laura joined Talent Intuition as a consultant and researcher. She enjoys being part of TI because of our culture of innovation - that we’re always to do things better and that we practice a lot of what we preach in that we have a very open, flexible working culture.  We push ourselves to provide excellence to our clients whilst respecting that we all have a life outside of work.

Laura’s career started in executive search, straight out of university, before she moved into broader talent intelligence consulting. Laura’s professional passion is helping to answer big people questions. She truly believes that there is nothing our research team can’t answer if we ask the right people the right questions. When Laura’s not connecting and engaging with executive talent for our clients, she spends as much time outdoors as possible: running, dog walking, and exploring the world through the eyes of her toddler, Callen.

Lina Shulman

Hands on Data, Head in the clouds

Lina is our chief problem solver and data scientist. She studied mathematics and statistics at university but only really found herself when she discovered data science. Lina joined Talent Intuition because she enjoys seeing how a single question can unfold into thousands of possibilities and later emerges into single solution – which is exactly the process we go through for our clients. As she says, the single or perfect solution doesn’t always look so perfect if you see it from a different angle which is why we need data science, and why so often, one question leads to another.

At Talent Intuition Lina’s passion is applying her AI models to some really difficult problems. Outside work Lina can be found making model airplanes with her son or debating interesting topics and making travel plans for exciting destinations with her daughter. Lina also loves reading and films and loves to get lost in Utopian and fantasy worlds as complete relaxation from work.

Joanne Rogers

Head of Making Noise

Jo leads our marketing efforts and is in charge of making as much noise about TI as possible. Jo has worked with Talent Intuition since 2016 and has enjoyed being on the journey so far having worked with Alison in previous roles and watched TI and Stratigens since their very beginnings. Jo’s background is in professional services and business to business marketing.

Before arriving back in the UK in 2015, Jo worked for Hay Group as Head of Marketing for the Middle East and was based in Dubai for seven years. Her professional passions are great content and great marketing tech. When she’s not making noise about TI, Jo loves competing with her horse, walking her terrier and tinkering with Land Rovers. She lives in Cheshire with her husband Chance, her naughty terrier Beeswax, and horse, Ted.

Sarah Clayton

Head of Getting Stuff Done

Sarah joined Talent Intuition at the start of 2020 as a virtual assistant. Sarah set up her business with the aim of creating a remote working career that is not influenced by location, and her professional passions are problem solving and having a project to tackle. She helps all of us at TI to stay organised and up to date.

Sarah’s background is in recruitment and property – though as an Army wife she’s held a variety of roles to fit around moving and bringing up two children. Sarah has moved 14 times in 20 years including 4 overseas moves! Her roles have included working in a young offenders’ prison, on an army camp, exam invigilating at schools, and working with horses. When she’s not organising us all at TI Sarah’s loves are riding, walking her border terrier called Midge, running, yoga, skiing and generally being outside. Sarah has two teenage children and enjoys spending time with her family.

Kelly Berryman

Head of Paying Money

Kelly is our finance manager. She joined Talent Intuition because she loves how incredibly friendly the team is and the passion everyone has for their work. Kelly has known our CEO, Alison, for a long time and has watched the business flourish. She sees Alison’s passion reflected in the whole team and the work that comes from it, which is a real testament to our culture. Kelly’s role is to provide us with accurate financial information in a timely manner which helps us to make the correct business decisions. She loves supporting from the accountancy side to free up the rest of the team to focus on their own strengths.

Kelly qualified as a Chartered accountant in Bristol and then worked for an accountancy firm in Cheltenham before setting up her own business in Animal Care and assisting with organising horse events - which she still does alongside running her accountancy business!  Kelly has two dogs, Snoopy and Rupert, with whom she competes in agility classes, and she loves a long pub walk. She also spends a lot of time with her young horse, Una, and enjoys anything that involves being outside with friends and animals.
