Why I work for Seismic:

I have a real alignment with the way the founders feel a great business should be run. Seismic gives me the opportunity to both develop a great business to be the best it can be and to support other businesses to do the same. Double impact!

My experience:

Since graduating in 2004 I have spent most of my professional career making buildings use less energy and organisations use less carbon. This led me to management positions where I was more able to support and grow teams, creating great places to work.

Some companies I’ve worked with:

Carbon Trust, The Jockey Club, Rothschild & Co, Aviva, JCB, Clifford Chance, Everyone Active

A seismic change I’d like to see in the future:

A trusting and open way of working becoming the norm, enabling more people to get greater fulfillment through their work.

Where I like to be:

I’m at my most content when relaxing with family and friends. Doing this after going for a great run or bike ride is particularly nice, embracing the smugness!
