I believe that entrepreneurship can transform individuals, society and the economy. As well as founding, investing in and managing entrepreneurial businesses, I have taught and advised on entrepreneurship: I was a Teaching Fellow in Entrepreneurship at London Business School from 2004-2007, and have in the past consulted to HM Treasury, the Labour Party and the CBI on enterprise and entrepreneurship. I am a transformational leader, with a passion for building authentic consumer brands. I believe business needs to contribute to, not mitigate their impact on, society and the planet. I am industry agnostic, having worked in home and interiors, FMCG, hospitality, retail, and consumer technology. Currently building a portfolio of non-exec roles in business and social innovation.
