Hortense Thorpe

Outsourcing Manager, Centrica/British Gas

Hortense is a social butterfly. By day she works as an Outsourcing Manager for a large Utilities company, but by night she has a passion for starting new projects and meeting people. As a result, she has been leading and coordinating several networks focusing on connecting and empowering people, whether this involves new technologies, fundraising for charities, diversity and inclusion, and most recently Fertility, she enters each new project with increased enthusiasm.

She was diagnosed with infertility in 2017 following years of health issues and failing to conceive, and since then, like an IVF Hobbit, she has taken on the fertility quest, bringing people together on her journey. She created The Centrica Fertility Group to support colleagues, raise awareness and increase the opportunities for families to grow.
