About this video

Paula Cooper talks about her job as the Director of ConsumerOne and explains that it is much more about understanding people than working with cars. She describes her workplace at the automotive manufacturer Toyota GB as having a focus on wellbeing and a positive "can do" culture of collaboration and change. She chose to study Economics, French, and German at A Level because they were the subjects she enjoyed the most and went on to study Modern Languages and Politics at University. She then went to study a qualification in Management at Henley Business School whilst working and has recently completed a coaching qualification. As an award-winning woman executive at the top of what was traditionally seen as a male-dominated sector, she explains how important it is to not be restricted by gender stereotypes when choosing a career.
