I'm striving to make a difference.

However small or large. It could be investing in a business that has a positive social, environmental or healthcare impact, working to promote diversity and women in business, or supporting talented and driven friends in their endeavours.

More prose, less PowerPoint.

I love to write – I did a lot of writing at school and university but as a management consultant this usually manifested itself in PowerPoint presentations. Now at Northzone, I’m inspired by my colleagues to channel my writing into something more inspiring. Watch out for me on Medium!

I'm happiest when

Travelling to exciting new places. Recent destinations include Colombia, Sri Lanka and Mexico, with a trip to Ethiopia planned for 2020.
