Hilarious. Modest. And Inconsistent.

Realistic answer : Gardening and laundry

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?

Bit cheesy, but my first sales manager (when I sold windows lol), used to give a prep talk to a bunch of uninterested teens on £5 per hour. Something he said which kinda stuck, was a bumble bee physically shouldn't be able to fly. It's a fat bee with tiny wings. BUT, the reason it flies, it because nobody told it that it couldn't. This was in the 90s before the victim olympics went supernova in 2015. I loved that. It's too easy to give up because it's expected. Live in a world where anything is possible.Led to a victor not a victim mentality. And I sold 2 windows that evening.

What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?

That Rawnet is still Rawnet even though we're 5x what we used to be.

Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?

I expose my talents for all to see

What’s one hobby you’d love to get into?

Well, to get back into, would be drumming.

Which Rawnet value especially stands out to you and why?

Be Real - it's what drive our success. Every other agency tries to be something it isn't.
