Ashley's greatest professional achievement

There’s too many to choose just one but I’d say being invited to St James Palace to collect an award from Princess Anne was a real highlight.

Ashley's quirky fact

I’ve just completed the outline of my first book and will start writing it in earnest, as soon as we move out of the caravan into the house my husband is building.

Ashley's TED Talk big idea

I’d be keen to build on my talk from last year which asked the question "Is education broken?" and look at how we should be teaching kids to be the best entrepreneurs!

Ashley's favourite TED Talk

The power of vulnerability
Brene Brown

A very powerful TED Talk and my firm favourite.
