  • What inspired you to enter this field?

    My journey has been inspired by a deep-seated desire to contribute to a fairer, more inclusive society. Seeing people held back from opportunities they deserve and a decent quality of life, especially those facing barriers in our society really hits home for me. If we can help organisations on their mission to create a fairer, more inclusive world then it feels good to be a part of that.

  • What are your career highlights?

    Reflecting on my career, a few standout achievements come to mind. Progressing to head of sales in a startup environment allowed me to build and refine our sales function, contributing to the continuous improvement of our product for our valued customers. Transitioning from recruitment to SaaS broadened my horizons. It meant stepping out of my comfort zone and discovering how my sales skills can be transferred into a new and industry. Working closely with our diverse range of customers has been immensely rewarding, and witnessing their growth alongside ours has been a testament to the value we bring to the table.

  • What gets you up in the morning?

    The excitement of a new day, where anything could happen. Some of the best moments of my life have caught me by surprise.  

  • My favourite city in the world to visit would be...

  • Outside of work you can find me...

    Spending time with the people I love, who fill my heart with laughter and make my soul feel full.  

  • Top 3 loves?
