2 years ago I was the Manager of a National Recruitment Agency in Northern Ireland. However, in 2011 myself & my team were made redundant. Sad times. However, in hindsight redundancy was probably the best career decision that was made for me! I had always been a creative person & had good ideas. The Holstee Manifesto was an early stage inspiration to me – especially the “Start Doing Things You Love” line – for too long I had sleepwalking in my career and had not been brave enough to consider the bigger picture. 

The platform I went on to co-found seeks to inspire, encourage and motivate people to come together, connect and collaborate on creative and entrepreneurial projects – A true Holstee mindset me thinks!
