How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Everyone has their own area of expertise and each co-founder has a vital role to play in a start-up. Co-founders need to have total trust and respect for each other so that the culture is one of sharing and giving to create a high performing team capable of developing the idea into a business.

As an Advisor

I am a hands on person better suited to personal (voice) conversation and discussion. I bring practical experience and advice to the table. I work best in open conversation where ideas and suggestions are discussed in detail then implemented.
