Gladys Diaz - Global Insights Manager

by Helen Butterworth Movers & Shakers

If you could go anywhere this weekend, where would you go and why?
Well, I am lucky enough to be going to Madrid this weekend to re-connect with a friend from school I haven’t seen in 8 years! I’m very excited to enjoy some sunshine in October and be around people that know me since I had braces; I couldn’t think of anything better than relaxing and having some banter with friends.

What are you most passionate about?
My family. They provide a safe and nurturing place where I feel most like ‘myself’. I love spending time with them. We can spend hours around the dinner table dissecting a topic into finite details. We are big huggers: we hug when we say hello, goodbye, and sometimes when we’ve been gone from the room for a while.

What is one thing you have learnt in the last year?
Persevere. Sometimes, though, if you stop looking for things they will just appear before you. Applies to life goals and keys!

Your favourite memory involving tea:
A while back I got into a routine of going to the gym first thing in the morning. I’d then get peanut butter on toast and a cup of black tea with milk for breakfast. At times, knowing that I would have that cup of tea was the only thing keeping me going on the treadmill.
