Policy Operations Manager 

Lucy Harvie-Austin, Policy Operations Manager

Sophie Breeden is Policy Operations Manager at the Institute of Directors.

Sophie is the Operations Manager for the Policy Unit at the IoD. Responsible for the planning and delivery of all policy events, when not at her desk, Sophie can often be found dashing around the second floor events spaces or coordinating a breakfast roundtable in the restaurant. In addition to the events management for the department, Sophie is across all travel and logistics for the policy team, as well as managing all admin for the department including marketing channels and IoD.com.

Before joining the IoD, Sophie spent a number of years working for a speaker bureau, getting under the skin of the corporate events market. After a short spell in conference production, the policy team and the content-led events offering here at the IoD are what attracted her to the organisation.

Sophie graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, in 2009, where she read English and Drama
