“I have a really annoying habit of reducing a big idea down to minute detail. I can very quickly take the wind out of a concept with one simple word, ‘but’. I’ve learnt over time that there’s a time and a place for ‘but’ and that other words like ‘how’ can be a more effective tool for getting clarity and focus without restricting inspiration and passion.
It’s big social ideas like The Big Cold Turkey product, which led to the creation of our Foundation, that excite me. As a founding member of The Big Cold Turkey Foundation, I’m passionate about not only helping to support youth but to give them opportunities they might not otherwise have.”
