Brought up in inner city Birmingham, Patel’s Indian immigrant parents told her that education would unlock a "better life". She studied hard and graduated from Cambridge University with first-class honours before being snapped up by Deloitte and qualifying as a chartered accountant. She joined 21st Century Fox as a senior finance analyst in 2010 and has rocketed up the ladder to become CFO of Fox Networks Group UK and Africa.
