Meet the Team: Moe Musa

Hi, I’m Mohamed, more commonly known as Moe (I spell Mo with an e because of Moe Szyslak from the Simpsons).   I’ve lived the majority of my life in North London, but have travelled to quite a handful of countries!   After completing my A-levels I wasn’t entirely sure what career to pursue, so I decided to experiment and worked in various fields, from recruitment to sales to accounts. I took an internship in finance, and fell in love with accounting and numbers and went back and got my qualifications.   When I’m not working, I enjoy football (both watching and playing) and, weirdly enough, I’m a Manchester United fan who has lived his whole life next to Arsenal FC. ( I know, it doesn’t make sense).   In the last year and a half or so, I have been introduced to the world of gym and fitness and tend to spend the majority of my time outside of work at the gym. I’m a big Game of Thrones fan and love horror movies.      "Don’t take the free ride in your own life" - Nickelback  

We sat down with our finance whizz, Moe, to chat about his mathematical history, fitness, and eating dinner with Will Smith.

How has your time been at Speakers Corner so far?

My time at Speakers Corner has been, and continues to be, an amazing experience. From my colleagues, to the culture of the company, there’s nothing more I could have asked for! As of today, I’ve been at Speakers Corner for 1 year and 10 days, and everyday has been a chance to grow and develop in such a nurturing and innovative company.

You are known in the office as Moe Money. Have you always been into numbers?

I have always been into numbers! Math’s was my favorite subject in school. I won’t to go to the extent of saying I dreamt in figures and graphs, but I hardly struggled in finding X. The following is my favourite math’s joke… why is a math’s book always unhappy? Because it always has lots of problems.

What might we find you doing outside of the office?

Outside of the office I try to live a very active lifestyle, I’m in the gym 5 times a week trying to lift the heaviest thing I can find. I also play football a lot, I usually play as a midfielder who can also slot into a right-back position when needed (yes, versatile I know), and on most Tuesdays I’m in a boxing class trying to get my sweat on.

A question I like to ask – name your dream dinner table guests? Limited to 6!

Dream dinner table guests? I could name a hundred but if I was limited to six, I would say…

1. Elon Musk - The man is a living genius.
2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson - I really admire his work ethic.
3. Akala - (Akala holds the honor of being recognised as my favourite speaker) - In my opinion, Akala is an amazing speaker on current and historic sociopolitical issues.
4. Bill Gates - I really admire Bill on his philanthropy and humanitarian work, especially his work on reducing child mortality through increasing the availability of vaccines across the globe.
5. Barack Obama - A lot of people might not have heard of this Obama guy, but he’s a quite an amazing individual. Also, I see Obama as one of the most eloquent orators of our generation. A great example of this is his 2004 speech, “The Audacity of Hope” at the DNC in Boston.
6. Will Smith - Will also holds another highly sought-after honour in the entertainment industry, which is… he’s my favourite actor.

Who has been your favourite speaker to date?

My favorite speaker that I’ve seen talk in the office is John Amaechi, followed closely by Pritpal Tamber, but my overall favorite speaker is Akala.
