It’s less about work-life balance, rather ‘whole life’ balance for me. I love learning, being stretched and challenged – anything from getting to grips with a new model or framework to completing a 100km night bike ride or marathon distance hike. Family, friends and my local community are central to this – they are never far away from the action!
