What gets me out of bed in the morning

Rather annoyingly to those around me I suspect, I am one of *those* chirpy morning people who relishes the opportunity to work with people from a crazily diverse range of industries who do work that is important to them and which they enjoy. The variety of work appeals immensely to my nature and keeps me on my toes! And as Ignition team’s newest member, working with energetic and dynamic-thinking colleagues is something I look forward to every day.

An entrepreneur I admire

I don’t have to look very far - my parents and a very close friend of mine, Arun. My father has established several small businesses whilst my mother provided the crucial “behind the scenes” support. I was incredibly impressed when I first heard about Arun’s “book of ideas” at law school (back when it wasn’t very common for uni students to be encouraged to set up their own gig) and remain extremely proud of what Arun has achieved.

I would also add Sara Blakely (founder of Spanx). Enough said!
