Sophie Brading

Business Development Consultant (South West and Wales)

My work background:

I have twenty years of Sales, Marketing and Business Development experience gained through working for a variety of organisations within the Construction Industry.

About my role:

In my role as Business Development Consultant for Hickton Group I am responsible for promoting our services to relevant companies on the South Coast.

About me:
I have a passion for business development and love to meet new people, forging long lasting relationships.  I am down-to-earth and friendly – no hard sales here!  I work hard, enjoy a challenge and thrive in lively team environments. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, and living on the Isle of Wight I feel lucky to have some of the most incredible beaches in the UK and miles of beautiful lush green countryside on my doorstep.  I enjoy running, hiking, drinking plenty of coffee and I love to cook.

Random facts:
A few years ago, I abseiled the 170m tall Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth for charity!  My first car was a bright red Mini Mayfair which I adored.  My proudest accomplishment is my beautiful daughter, who I brought her up as a single working mother.
