10 Questions with... Trudi Osborne


Each month we ask a cleaning industry professional the


Tomorrow’s Cleaning 10 Questions. This month, we chatted to Trudi Osborne, Marketing Manager at Airdri.


1 2 3


WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB? I was an admin assistant in one of the colleges in Oxford.


Such a magnificent environment to work in. I felt it was a privilege to work there.


HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE CLEANING INDUSTRY? I was approached by an agency on Airdri's Behalf. Airdri


had ambitious business development plans and recognised the importance of marketing in helping it achieve its goals.


WHICH THREE WORDS DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?


Energetic, positive and loyal. 4


IF YOU COULD VISIT ONE PLACE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO AND WHY?


I love to travel and my bucket list always seems to increase. I love to experience different cultures and explore off the beaten track. My next trip will be to South America.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY TOMORROW, HOW WOULD YOU SPEND YOUR FORTUNE?


I’d buy my forever home – just one, I don’t need a holiday home. Then I’d make sure that family and friends were comfortable and debt free. I’d plan a modest income for the rest of my life to feel secure and look into the charities I could support to make a difference.


8


IF YOU COULD HOST A DINNER PARTY AND INVITE ANY THREE PEOPLE, DEAD OR ALIVE, WHO WOULD


THEY BE AND WHY? Nelson Mandela – such a remarkable example of strength, intelligence and humility. Gladys Aylward – she has always been a heroine to me ever since I watched Inn of Sixth Happiness as a child and realised that it was a true story. And Emmeline Pankhurst – as a woman I have to be both respectful of her and immensely grateful. Without such pioneers for the rights of women, our lives would be so very different today.

WHAT, DO YOU THINK, IS THE FUTURE OF THE CLEANING INDUSTRY?


I think sustainability has to be at the forefront of all purchasing decisions. Although the cleaning and hygiene sector has championed sustainability for many years now, much more can be done, and we need to help customers make informed choices about products that are effective, whilst protecting our planet. It all comes down to smart procurement when equipping a washroom, to deliver eco- benefits for years to come.

HOW WOULD YOU IMPROVE THE CLEANING INDUSTRY?


Make it more sustainable, from the way we manufacture and ship to the end products and services we deliver.


IF AN INTERN WERE TO START TOMORROW, WHAT’S THE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD


GIVE THEM? Never be afraid to ask questions.

IN WHAT AREAS DO YOU THINK THAT THE CLEANING INDUSTRY IN THE UK/EUROPE ARE


BEHIND THE CURVE? I think there’s always room for improvement when it comes to offering green products. I’ve noticed that many companies are now offering carbon neutral or low energy solutions which is great, but I’m still shocked at how many washrooms are stocked full of paper towels. Sustainability should be front of mind, as not only do we have a responsibility to reduce the impact that our practices and products have on the planet, but customers are increasingly asking for green solutions and we need to be prepared to meet their demand.
