Flora has been Head of Government Relations for nearly four years, following a decade of senior political advisory work. Flora has particular expertise in European politics and retail financial services. She has helped coordinate and participated in international social action projects in Croatia, Turkey, Bangladesh, and Bosnia.

She played a key role in delivering the Cross-Border payments regulation, pushing for global transparency and to secure a law in the EU which means the 500 million people in the EU will know what it costs to make an international payment, generating an additional €4bn in the European economy from day one.

Flora advises startups on political relations and is on the Steering Board of Coadec – the policy voice of startups. She is an Ambassador to the global campaign Transparency Taskforce.

She believes we can only improve if we make our workforce more diverse. She’s working to deliver greater inclusion in politics, business, and technology through her involvement with Coadec, the TRG, Women2Win, TechHub, Women in Public Affairs and DevelopHer.

In 2019 she was awarded the fourth most inspirational woman in UK public affairs, and one of the top five standout female policy makers and regulatory experts in fintech.
