Felicity Hawksley, Research & Advocacy Manager 

Felicity has a BA in English from Oxford University, where she was twice a rowing Blue. She comes to First Story after five years at PwC, where she worked variously in financial reporting, standard setting and as a senior intelligence analyst. At First Story, she manages the research and evaluation work three days a week. She is also a financial journalist.

Felicity loves to run and more sedately wonder at pre-Reformation church architecture. Her favourite book is (probably) The End of the Affair, by Graham Greene or The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham. At the moment, Felicity is reading Outlandish Knight: The Byzantine Life of Steven Runciman by Minoo Dinshaw.

Felicity is a qualified bike mechanic and will worry about the state of your bike for free.
