60-Second Interview

Who was your biggest hero when you were younger?
When I was younger, I was never into or inspired by just one person, I had influences from many people ranging from my mum, my dance teachers through to Beyonce. Taking advice, being inspired by them to mould all that into the person I am today.
What initially attracted you to enterprise?
Can you tell us about the first £10 you ever made?
In high school, I was given the opportunity to start my own business as part of a mini 6 month project where I sold jewellery and accessories at various events and exhibitions. I even had a stall at Intu Braehead shopping centre.
What has been your biggest challenge so far with your business?
Juggling so many different tasks at the one time. Recruitment is so varied in terms of the companies I work with, people I meet and jobs I work that no day is the same and trying to keep everything moving along smoothly has most definitely been a challenge, all be it a good one.
Who is it that keeps you going through any tough times?
Gillian Kho (my mum) – she’s an absolute trooper. She’s there for me 24/7 and gives the best advice and is fond of a glass of prosecco when the good times roll round.
What is it that gets you out of your bed in the morning?
Honestly…..food. I’m a massive foodie and come morning I’m always starving and wondering what I’m going to have for my breakfast. Aside from food, I love what I do and walking into work doesn’t feel like I’m going to work. I’m lucky to work with a bunch of innovative and talented people who are excellent at what they do.
How do you define success?
Happiness
Where do you see your business in 5 years’ time?
Most definitely at iMultiply and within recruitment. What my role will look like within the business, I’m not sure as there are a couple of different routes I can take.
If you could give your “teenage self” one piece of advice, what would it be?
Be yourself, be unique and be confident in your abilities and ideas.
If you could have any one person on your business contact list, who would that person be and why?
Oprah Winfrey
