Name

Lisa Gregory

Age

38

Company

Stormchild Ventures

Company turnover

£250,000

First job

I had a few Saturday jobs before leaving school, but my first full-time job was working as a fashion model for Models 1 after winning the Clothes Show Model of the Year competition.

Dream job

A pilot. I love to travel and enjoy meeting other people and experiencing different cultures

Car

Nissan Qashqai – a great run-around city car.

Economy, business or first class

Economy, unless I can justify Business.

Most extravagant purchase

My business, but definitely worth every penny!

Most-played song on your iPod

The only time I really listen to my iPod is when I run. My favourite track is Dizzee Rascal – Bonkers, it really gets me going!

Best business book

‘Spent’ by Geoffrey Miller.

Worst business moment

I once sent an email that was meant for my husband to an employee with the same name. Very embarrassing, but thankfully it was not too inappropriate. I have never done that again!

Proudest business moment

Celebrating one year of business at Stormchild Ventures with the team.

Your business mentor

I don’t really have one at the moment, but my husband has been incredibly supportive. Also my brother, who runs his own business, has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the ups and downs of starting a company.

Next big thing

Mobile Everything. We are soon going to be able to do nearly anything we want on the move, from the palm of our hands, anywhere we are in the world. I think these opportunities are incredibly exciting.
