Favourite sayings of Siobhan:
"You need to think about the whole brand experience from the guest's perspective - the website and the menu along with the space."
"There are eight billion chairs in the world. I can find you the right one."
"The bathroom in a restaurant is so important - that alone can create media buzz."
"I’m not your friend to go shopping with. I'm here to get your project done."
"I’m interested in the human use of spaces, and how humans interact and move around spaces."
