If you’re looking for the best bagels in New York, baklava in Istanbul, or a tasty tagine in Morocco, then Tessa is the lady to talk to. With a map in one hand and a menu in the other, she follows her nose around any new city to hunt out the best spots to eat. It helps that she already boasts a career that has taken her to places with plenty of gastronomic delights to choose from - including New York, Madrid, Germany, Istanbul, Morocco, Shanghai, Florence and New Zealand. If she had to pick a favourite it would be Istanbul, where she spent time during her undergraduate studies - a stand out for its unique demographic, stunning scenery and interesting history.
When she’s not trying new fare, reading a book, or petting strangers’ dogs, she’s an Associate here at Partners in Performance, where she has worked for the last year and a half. Tessa gained a BA (Hons) from New York University Abu Dhabi, including a thesis on the effect of risk on giving decisions. With experience in economic, behavioural and public policy research, Tessa is now helping organisations optimise their processes and operations, having already undertaken several significant engagements at Partners in Performance.
