What do you do for your clients at Ignition Law?
I am part of the team looking after Ignition’s financials, with a specific brief to help Alex and Phil grow the firm and achieve its strategic goals.
What gets me out of bed in the morning
It’s great to be part of taking a business forward. There are always challenges, but you know that your efforts count for something and there is nothing like breaking new ground together. Fundamentally, I think most of us are looking to do something worthwhile and to do it with people we like.
An entrepreneur I admire
It’s not the big names that get me so excited. It is the vast number of people who have the courage to set up their own businesses, take the risk and back themselves to succeed.
What would you put on your Ignition Law playlist or bookshelf?
I am a big reader and have just reread The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell. An outstanding book, but at 1000 pages, lockdown was the right time to read it.
A social cause I care about is…
The housing crisis. A national disgrace and one that we ought easily to be able to address. A particular tragedy that so many children are growing up without a decent and stable place to live.
