Q&A with Simon
Describe yourself in three words.
Inquisitive, thoughtful and Welsh.
Who or what inspires you?
Those people who do things differently, the individuals or companies that challenge conventional wisdom and come up with new ideas and ways of tackling existing problems.
What does success look like to you?
What do you enjoy most about working at Kekst CNC? How does working at Kekst CNC challenge you?
Being able to scrutinise and support our clients in the variety of diverse challenges they face today and, most importantly, being empowered to give the best advice possible.
What career advice would you give to your younger self?
I would say that variety is undoubtedly the spice of life and a portfolio career is a good thing. I’ve worked in banking, journalism and now communications. Having a breadth of experience earned in different jobs ultimately translates into better, more considered advice for clients.
