In Celebration of Pi - Meet our Finance Team!

Hey – I’m Abbie and I working in the marketing team here at the Speakers Corner towers. A graduate from the University of Adelaide, I hold two degrees in Commerce and Media. Upon completion I decided to relocate from my small beachside town in South Australia to London. I am please to report that I’m loving it here so far, although it has taken some time to get accustomed to there being more people on the tube in the morning then there are in my entire town!

World Pi Day, not to be confused with actual pie, but to celebrate the mathematical constant 3.14. We though a day dedicated to celebrating numbers is the perfect day to celebrate the people in our office whose lives revolve around numbers: our wonderful Finance Team!

We caught up with Dani, Moe and Paula to ask a couple of quick-fire questions.

Dani

If you have dealt with our lovely finance department, it may have been Dani on the end of the phone of email. Coming from a multicultural background being half Ecuadorian and half Chinese, attending a German school and fluent in many languages, she recently relocated from Ecuador to the hustle and bustle of London. Passions of hers include travelling and experiencing other cultures, cooking, music, Pilates and exploring new places, one of which is London!

What’s your favourite thing about your role at Speakers Corner?

I love working in the Finance team! I really enjoy working with numbers, budgets, invoices and payments. But not only do we make sure that all of our clients receive invoices and artists get paid, we also take care of the financial position of the company. One of the great things about working here is the flexibility - you can implement new things, try them out to see if they work and if they don’t, just go back.

What is a little fun fact that people might not know about you?

I love to do sudokus and dance salsa, or anything Latin!

Who are your 3 favourite speakers?

Moe

The next member of our finance team is number crunching and inquisitive, Moe. Living most of his life close to our offices in North London, close to Arsenal FC, he is surprisingly a big Manchester United fan and equally loves playing and watch football. Recently being introduced to the world of gym and fitness, he has spent the better half of the year (outside of work) working towards fitness goals.

What do you love about Finance?

As a youngster I use to love math and money and ever since I got job my first internship working in accounts department, I never looked back. While some people might find staring at a spreadsheet all day to be tedious, there nothing I love more. 

What is a little fun fact that people might not know about you?

I lived in Dubai for a year where I learned to speak Arabic to a very good standard.

Paula

The final member of our fab finance team is the first and only resident at Speakers Corner who hails from Glasgow, Paula. Growing up mad about Johnny Depp, Busted and rescuing as many stray animals as possible, she had an incredible 7 hamsters, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 4 beautiful goldfish at the peak of her craze. In addition to her love of animals, you can find her baking, at the cinema, or catching up on her favourite TV shows!

What’s your favourite thing about your role at Speakers Corner?

My favourite thing about finance is getting to work with such a fantastic team - Dani and Moe. I also love numbers...obvs. Nothing is open to interpretation, its either right or wrong and I love that!

What is a little fun fact that people might not know about you?

In my spare time I love cake making and entering the odd competition!
