A mix of expertise from across the financial services profession, all with a desire to see things done a little differently.
Realising that compliance is far more negative than it needs to be, I came up with the idea to revolutionise the entire industry and create a friendly, helpful service for advisers!
New Zealand is on my ‘must visit soon’ list
Spiders. Ick ick ick.
What spare time?!
You dont have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
A part of my job that really fascinates me is being able to get audiences to engage in a product and service. Given the typically negative relationship between advisers and their compliance providers, I feel like it’s a personal challenge to help change perceptions of this industry and really get people engaged with us and what we are doing.

Anything, as long as it’s a feast surrounded by those I love! Tapas, Antipasti, Meze…

She believed she could, so she did.
I was really excited about a brand new firm to launch within the industry, having spent the past three years with Para-Sols I love working for a brand that is passionate about innovation. I think it’s a great opportunity and challenge to help grow and build a new company, especially being in Client Relations I’m looking forward to spreading the word!
I would love to do an African Safari
I’m a huge dog lover and love nothing more than a peaceful walk in the countryside, just me and the dog!
Nothing will work unless you do
Working in compliance is poignant, in this environment you are not going to win every battle and indeed you have to pick your fights. This industry and the people who work in it are passionate and this is why I want to be part of compliance to continuing pushing this forward and watching how compliance evolves into something everyone enjoys.
Chucky (any of them – I even watched one on Christmas Eve)
German Shepherds (I was biten by one when I was little)
Read Martina Cole books.
Make your life a masterpiece; imagine no limitations on what you can be, have or do
The working environment. I’m a strong believer that the atmosphere of the office is the most important thing to help you suceed in your job. If you are happy and comfortable where you work, you will thrive. Everyone here is so lovely and friendly and it makes me enjoy my job even more!
Alice in Wonderland (the original of course)
Spiders or any insect really (I’d be terrible in the jungle)
Stick my nose in a good book or go for a walk with my dogs.
Go for it. No matter how it ends, it was an experience.
What really stood out to me about Apricity was the idea of a fresh approach to compliance as it can be seen as quite a negative sector. However I think Apricity is trying to make it fun whilst keeping a professional approach.

Pizza! end of discussion!
I have the unfortunate pleasure in going to watch Newcastle United every other week, I also like to go to the cinema on a regular basis.
Winners never quit and quitters never win.
From my past experience I have seen how this area can impact on the role of an Adviser, I was attracted to see how Apricity are taking a fresh look at making the whole process simpler and much more user friendly. I hope to bring my skills and experience to the team and use my view as an Adviser to simplify and support the parts of compliance that frustrates most Advisers.
