Day to day, I:

Am the first point of contact for most of the Growth Hub Enquiries. I then assess the needs of our clients and match them with the expertise and resources of the Northamptonshire Growth Hub.

For me, the best part about working at the Growth Hub is:

Speaking to people directly and hearing the passion they have for their enterprise.

When it’s my turn to buy the biscuits, I’m choosing:

An ‘Aldi Twix’ – they taste just the same and oh, how I do love a bargain.

The person I most admire is:

Carl Allen (played by Jim Carrey in the film ‘Yes Man’). I believe that life should be lived, and that gaining new experiences / trying new things regularly will only bring joy.

In life, I’m inspired by:

Seeing people progress and getting out there and doing things, I enjoy getting involved with practical projects being able to see the difference that these make.

A little known fact about me is:

When I was 17 and working in my part time job I sold a hamster to Les Ferdinand (ex Newcastle United & England striker). As far as football royalty goes, this was a big day for both me and the hamster.
