Meet the Team: Philippa Whitelock

Tell me about your role

I am a Growth Officer at GBSLEP, where I help to monitor the budgets we hold. I also process all invoices and payments for the LEP.


What do you enjoy most about your work?

I’m still learning about the LEP but it is a varied role from day to day and I work with a great team.


What have you studied and why?

I have just completed the academic side of a Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and will qualify next year as a Registered Counsellor. I chose this course in order to understand the issues that may arise in our lives that may hold us back.


What is your favourite place in the GBSLEP area and why?

Birmingham, as I have seen many changes for the better within the city over the last few years.


If you could host a talk show, who would be your first guest?

My first guest would be Oprah Winfrey.


If you had a superpower, what would it be?

The ability to stop time, as I never have enough of it!
