Tell us about you (what drives you)
Numbers. I dedicated the last three years of my time at university to learn how to turn data into something more tangible. I applied what I understood by starting multiple successful businesses as well as helping other SMES realise the locked potential of translating numbers into language.

Serial entrepreneurship, I will randomly wake up and start a business irrelevant of how successful I think it may or may not be.
