Goodbye Kathryn...but it’s two for two!

Kathryn’s time as the 2012 sustainability intern in my team comes imminently. She’s been an amazing asset teaming up with me on the Walmart global palm oil project and a really nice person to work with. I’m off to Singapore now for the annual RSPO palm oil meeting (more to come on this as we’ve got a very exciting announcement to make there!) so we’ve said our ‘goodbyes’.

Kathryn kindly filmed a few thoughts, above. I’m delighted that I once again achieved my aim of a two-way internship – we get some needed support but our interns get a boost from it too. For Kathryn this means that she is off to a fab new job at Bureau Veritas. That makes it two for two as my first intern last year, Ellie, went off to a great job at DHL. Both have said that the internship was a major factor in them getting these positions. I firmly believe that the fantastic Asda culture helped both of them to achieve their full potential.

Well done her but we will miss her around the team! I’m already thinking about our 2013 intern but not sure anyone can fill her shoes…..

We have our fingers crossed for an amazing result on her MSc now. Surely the icing on the cake.

Keep in touch Kathryn!
