Paul Goff is joining us in India in February, in Hyderabad, Telengana. He’s joining us with his girlfriend Emma Wilson, who we will tell you more about next week! Here’s a few words from Paul.
I’ve always had a passion and drive to both make change happen and push things forward…
Before staring my engineering degree at the University of Nottingham I was lucky enough to spent 3 months in Belize volunteering for Raleigh International. During this time the team build a primary school in a remote village alongside locals and completed a number of conservation projects. I think this experience really sparked my passion for travel, culture, and making a difference.
Pre getting going on building a career in London I worked in the west coast of Canada to feel the great outdoors before starting the urban march. After almost 10 years in London I have spent the majority of my time occupied as a business and supply chain consultant. The pace, variety and quality of people were major factors in my drive to both join and stay in this industry.
Recently I have moved away from labouring as a consultant to operating much more pragmatically and independently in the area of operations management. I’ve really enjoyed this change. The transition is continuing as I look to take a stride into Social Entrepreneurship.
Outside of work, outdoor activities are my major passion. Be it running, surfing, climbing, cycling, snowboarding, swimming, and hiking – yes please to all of that! I have supported a number of charities that are close to my heart through some of these adventures.
Looking forwards, the opportunity to work with Social_Starters in India really fills me with a tremendous amount of excitement to truly make a difference to both a small business and a social challenge. Bring it on!
