Why do I work with Project Rome?
The team. Everyone has had at least one career before Project Rome. That means we can bring a deep pool of knowledge and experience to client engagements. It is a senior and flat structure, there are no politics and the focus is 100% on successful client outcomes not on who gets to be the next head of the paper-clip audit.
What do I feel most proud of?
Finally scratching the itch to set up a band 15 years ago – it’s a great antidote to stress. But obviously I am most proud of my three kids – one of whom is researching into how organic materials could replace silicon in solar PV. A chip off the old block.
