1. Best piece of advice you’ve been given

Ask for forgiveness not permission…!

2. Worst piece of advice you’ve been given

I tend to ignore it any negative advice. Delete it, forget it!

3. What would you tell your younger self?

Try more things, go beyond what you see and know, explore even more…

4. What excites you most about the future of your industry?

I think this chapter may be the beginning of a real big shift in society and global economy. I think it will create opportunities for talent, and for innovation, to refocus priorities to tackle our most pressing problems such as mental health, the environment, the impact of automation on people and lives. Being in the intersect of commercial and social innovation I believe we are well-positioned to ride this wave and build amazing new things.

5. Who or what is your biggest inspiration?

My mother, my children, and the founders I work with.
