Liza Paul (Treasurer)
I believe that that entrepreneurial leaders have an obligation to lead on sustainability and social impact. I bring my innate curiosity to learn and develop new perspectives, subject training as an engineer and attention to detail to support leadership in the financial life of the group while managing the required financial needs. There is nothing more powerful than collective consciousness and action.
