This week we are joined by Chris Ball, Managing Partner at Hoxton Capital Management, based in the UAE.
Chris shares his career journey with us. He left school at 18 and despite success as a tax adviser, he dropped it all at age 24 to go and work in the UAE as a financial adviser.
From humble beginnings (sleeping on a blow-up mattress!) Chris worked incredibly hard to rise through the ranks, eventually setting up his own business. His entrepreneurial journey has gone from kitchen start-up to 200+ staff.
