Prior to Nous, Colette worked alongside private equity firms as a research analyst at a company called Third Bridge. This included supporting research activities for deal sourcing, and due diligence for investment decisions often worth upwards of £1BN. Prior to working at Third Bridge, Colette helped co-ordinate fundraising strategies for an Oxford college, which involved a combination of database administration, creative marketing techniques and archive research.
Colette’s professional work followed five years of intense academic study as an avid scholar of philosophy and French, with an emphasis on the development and impact of the French Enlightenment. Her studies culminated in a Master’s dissertation on Voltaire’s concept of doubt.
When Colette is not reading or writing about philosophy, she can often be found watching a play at the West End or at a heavy metal concert.
