What do you enjoy most about working for Ebit?
“Being able to support a diverse array of companies with real, tangible, often business critical solutions which make a huge difference to their business, and working alongside a professional, hardworking and fun tip top team.”
What does your average day look like?
“Frankly, there is no average and every day is a new day. I could be targeting new businesses, having meetings/calls with potential clients, creating proposals, coaching my team, working with Ebit’s SLT on future strategy, or liaising on synergies with our wider group.”
When you’re not at work, what do you enjoy doing?
“I am an avid supporter and season ticket holder of my hometown football team, Exeter City (although I now live in Warwickshire). I play piano (after a fashion!) and enjoy food, music and country air (in that order!).”
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“Be nice to people on the way up as you meet them again on the way down.”
How have you adapted to remote working during lockdown?
“In fairness, I have always worked from home so it isn’t a new experience for me. That said, it used to be a couple days a week at home and out and about for the rest. I am lucky to have a “Man Cave” so working from home has no impact on the family.”
If you were to donate to charity, what would it be and why?
“Can I choose two..?
Guide Dogs for the Blind: They have a breeding centre near my house in Leamington Spa. To see them out on the streets training with their handlers is always humbling.
Alzheimer’s Research UK: My Dad had this horrible, unglamourous, silent disease. Huge respect to those hardworking, caring individuals who support and roll on continuing breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment.”
What’s your favourite quote?
“If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.” – Henry Ford
