I am led by...
Creativity - Transcend traditional ideas and rules, patterns and methods, interpretations and expectations. Create new ones.
Curiosity - Always be interested; even in the seemingly uninteresting. That’s often where the best bits lie.
Commitment - Bring your whole self to everything you do - not just business. Don’t hold back, but try to leave on time.
I know my strengths...
Brave - In thoughts and actions, I step forward
Enthusiastic - I’m willing and able to help when I can
Adaptable - I am quick to think, decide and act; I make stuff work
Articulate - I can convey concepts and stories (I’m working on feelings!)
Independent - I look for my own solutions and invent new ones
I will be generous with my skills...
Join the dots - Spotting opportunities, connecting people, seeing over the horizon
Problem solve - I respond well to immediate challenges
Provide creative input and challenge expectations
Focus equally on “task” and “process”
Prioritise and provide pragmatism
See the bigger picture - who, what, why, where, when
Get stuff done
I follow my inspiration...
I am inspired by:
Stories - books, podcasts, films and documentaries
Something where there once was nothing - creative projects and clean sheet technology
Models, theories and frameworks - adapting them and trying to apply them
Consistent and carefully curated aesthetics
I will seek and share joy...
I get joy from:
The initial “brain download and breathe out”
Putting a creative spin on something practical
Creating something from nothing
Talking, writing and sharing stories
Ticking off the to-do list
I will always evolve...
These were key moments in my “professional” life:
Getting given three new laptops, three new racing cars and making it work, despite a little “can’t do this” cry. Being asked to get my passport and join the team
Walking away from a financially secure, but mentally toxic workplace - in a relatively split-second decision. I’ve never regretted it on any level
Creating an event from scratch because I realised no one else would
I truly believe that...
We should all spend time doing what we love - whether that is growing your business, working on what you are good at or spending time with the things and people you care about.
I make that happen by...
Taking on projects
Giving structure, systems and skills
Sharing stories and experiences
Making stuff happen
