Julia Cook
Managing Director
StepBack Healthcare Ltd


I've worked with Julia over a number of years, both when she was MD of Lowe Fusion and latterly in her independent capacity. I myself have risen from Product Manager through senior international roles to my current position of agency MD during that time. However, I have found the same personal qualities and undoubted experience useful to both me and my business throughout. StepBack is a very apt description for one who's always helped me look at the big strategic picture whilst ensuring that NOTHING slips through the net - always providing helpful and appropriate prompts in the nicest possible way.
