Knowing More About Ele

When not at work, where would we find you?

You will find me working out, consuming huge volumes of self-improvement content, and pottering around in little crafty kinds of hobbies.


What is your favorite subject at school?

I loved learning languages from an early age so I started with English, Then at High School and University, I pursued French and German. Other subjects I really enjoyed (and still do) are history and philosophy.


Can you tell us something we don’t know about you?

I have uncompromising daily rituals to get my day going in a positive and productive way. I am quite obsessed with productivity hacks and try a variety of things to get more done in effective/ efficient ways.


What 3 items would you take with you on a desert island?

Providing there is electricity and Wi-Fi, I would take my iPad loaded with my 


Kindle app and my podcasts (I hope that counts as 1), a smoothie maker so all those coconuts on the island don’t go to waste, and a plane to fly to and from the island whenever I want.
