Never tell me the odds
As an experienced tech entrepreneur I'm fully aware of the highs and very lows of this game. Nine tenths of the time you are getting your arse kicked but that one tenth when you make a big sale or enable someone to speak for the first time with your software - that's what gets you up in the morning.
I've won over 10 awards nationally and internationally for my work growing my company and our speech and language product, MyChoicePad over the last 7 years. The latest was Elle Magazine Social Entrepreneur of the Year 2016.
I've recently added the hats of VC and lecturer at Cass Business School. I'm enjoying meeting lots of entrepreneurs as I do this and it's giving me a good broad view of the ecosystem we have.
I would like to share my experience by helping others grow with a focus on technology across health, education and social care. I'm also looking for public speaking and chairing opportunities at events.
