So Louise, What do you do for a living?

What made you move to the Costa del Sol?

Been in the Costa Blanca for 12 years, that and commuting to London too much made it the obvious move as many of my London Harley Street Clients also have places in the Costa del Sol

Tell us your greatest business or personal accomplishment?

I used to have 400 people work for my nationwide company this was my first company we supplied models for the races, football, Grand Prix. Everything from promoting rise crispy bars to holding the flags for the grand prix pole position. On a good day we had all 400 out at different venues through out the UK. Since I have spend 10 years running Drs practices in the UK and Spain. Attending public speaking events and have had many TV appearances.

Now I am helping to run Living Well Marbella, the best wellbeing event to hit marbella.

Why would you recommend the Costa del Sol for business and Lifestyle?

The balance of life is Key here. Work life balance is easy as it is acceptable to take an afternoon break or just work mornings, and forget working in the summer. I always have a holiday for two months as does everyone else!

If you could change one thing about Spain, what would it be?

Getting things done from the Spanish side takes too long. They need papers for everything and companies like the electricity companies are living in the dark ages.

Describe yourself in 3 words

Dynamic, powerful and fun loving.

What is your favourite Restaurant and Why?

The Marbella Club and MC Cafe, It’s homely and the entertainment has really stepped up a gear lately.

What is the last film you saw at the Cinema or DVD?

It’s Christmas! So it was Charley and the chocolate factory.

What advice would you give to someone moving to Spain?

Rent first, check out all the areas, work wise attend the networking events (and sites like this!) as net working is what its all about and it’s a tight circle to break into.

Name one other business you would recommend on the Costa Del Sol and why?

Body Works. They offer some very innovative treatments and are ahead of their time with diagnostics.
