Having an impact with people who are eager to create new solutions to the world we are living in. I’ve been training thousands of participants in EIA programs already and the feeling is amazing.

What advice would you give someone considering a more entrepreneurial career?

The only way to go it to try it - if you don't try you will never know. Be ready to wear multiple hats at the start, and don’t be afraid to learn as you go.
