We are pleased to announce that Sharon Dodson is taking over as centre manager at our Waterhouse Business Centre in Chelmsford whilst Michelle is on maternity leave. The good news is that she’s better at running a business centre than she is in steering nuclear submarines! You didn’t know about that?! We got her to confess all…

‘After school, I joined the Royal Navy as a WREN but I ran a nuclear submarine aground in Scotland so they put me into communications! My navigation skills still haven't improved!’ She then went on to pursue a career in the sports and leisure sector, where she credited her manager there for mentoring her and allowing her to step into the position of duty manager: 'She taught me how to lead a team, which put me in good stead.’ 

‘I remained in the sector for 15 years, before doing other similar managerial roles at a housing association, charity and in recruitment. I joined CapitalSpace in January as a deputy centre manager and I’m loving my new role as centre manager whilst Michelle is away. I am working with a brilliant team. Every day is different. I am learning all the time, for example, I had never patched a phone before, but now I can. I wasn't IT savvy before but I’m getting there. For me, it's brilliant...I like to test my brain cells!' 

Sharon enjoys working with her customers and when challenges arise, she says she deals with them 'with a smile'.
