'Hannah joined us in 2002 in a joint business development and account manager role.
'She's a great presenter and spurred me on. When we pitched, we made each other, and others, laugh, and inspired people to buy into us. As pitch partners, we achieved a 100 per cent record - even when we were outsiders to win, such as on pitches for First Telecom and Sanctuary Music.
'Hannah was also an excellent account handler - confident dealing at all levels of an organisation and offering solid strategic guidance, quick to pick up new sectors and subjects, great at devising stories.
'She left in 2004, but we are still firm friends.'
Hannah Roberts is now regional EMEA corporate communications manager at direct marketing agency Arc
