What’s your favourite thing about working in the social sector?

It gives me the incredible opportunity to spend my working day building the world I want to live in.

What does leading outside the ordinary mean to you?

Imagining something new, and developing plans to make it happen.

What’s the best professional advice you’ve been given?

Winnie Byanyima (Oxfam International Executive Director) inspired me by being bold, every day.

What’s your favourite thing to do for your own well being?

Cycling. Get a bike!

Why do you think it’s important to attend networking events?

There’s so much to learn from others. Networking is how you borrow or conceive brilliant ideas to take back to the office.
