What gets me out of bed in the morning

Challenge, variety and working in a fantastic team at Ignition Financial and Ignition Law. No two days are ever remotely the same. It is rewarding removing entrepreneurs’ pain points, so they can invest their time on the business rather than in it.

An entrepreneur I admire

James Watt and Martin Dickie. BrewDog thrives by thinking and acting differently in an old, established industry dominated by a handful of global brewers. Brew Dog’s founders are fiercely protective and loyal to their local roots, values and principles. Phenomenal success has followed.
