"I spend most of my week in my clients’ offices working as their CFO, helping to provide financial guidance and strategy in order to manage and fuel continued growth. I enjoy so many aspects of my role, but I think my favourite is the opportunity to share in the journey of passionate, motivated entrepreneurs doing absolutely incredibly things in the technology sector."
