To be a General Manager it helps to have an interest in many things, as ATDI’s Sarah Byrne knows all too well.
“It’s the variety of work that keeps my job interesting,” Sarah says. “With responsibility for the company’s HR, finances, quality, staff development and premises, it means that no two days are the same.”
She adds: “I find human behaviour fascinating so the fact that I work so closely with others in the company gives a good insight into the way that engineers work.” Sarah has put this interest in people to good use by recently gaining an honours degree in social sciences through the Open University. “Social Sciences incorporates a wide range of disciplines including politics, economics, sociology and psychology, which have proved beneficial in all aspects of my life by giving me a greater understanding of business, people and the world in general.”
When not quietly studying her colleagues’ behaviour, Sarah’s varied interests include tenpin bowling (representing Sussex as both a junior and an adult), alternative rock music and interior design.
