I'm most proud of...
Travelling and working in Tanzania and Malawi on two separate occasions with a small not-for-profit organisation. It was an incredible opportunity to work in a vastly different environment which enlightened me to never take anything for granted.
Having the opportunity to work within teams that were diverse in thinking, social economic experience and culture strengthened my passion to help others grow and develop their businesses. I continue to support my connection with Africa by sponsoring a child, Alice, throughout her schooling in Tanzania.
The most valuable lesson I've learned was...
Always seek advice from your peers and having a solid network opens up mountains of opportunities to develop yourself.
In the startup ecosystem, I'm most passionate about...
Diversity of thinking. I'm excited about working with the founders who bring a wide range of innovative and creative solutions to tackle our most pressing global, regional and local issues.
I believe the most important thing for founders in today's environment is...
Passion and resilience. This enables a founder to keep moving forward when they face adversity.
My words to live by
Everything happens for a reason.
