Between The Lines with Haig – and the Company of Entrepreneurs
Company Freeman Haig Armaghanian is the CEO and Founder of Haig Barrett Inc (USA) and Haig Barrett Partners Ltd (UK). In his words the business is the partner of choice for prestigious clients based in the USA, Europe and the Middle East, thriving on growing businesses, finding funding solutions, providing innovation where it seems difficult and growth opportunities where it seems unlikely. He has an eclectic team of consultants and entrepreneurs as well as a mind-blowing extended team of academics and ex-senior executives.
Alongside his day job Haig has launched Between The Lines where he brings smart casual conversations to explore business insights with some of the most switched on brains across the globe. We were delighted when Haig invited us to sponsor the current series where he speaks to some leading entrepreneurs, including a couple of guest appearances upcoming from within the Company. More about that soon!
In the meantime the first episode is with Alex Wallace, founder at The Mintridge Foundation and Associate Fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society. Starting out her career as a sportswoman playing hockey to becoming a true inspiration to 60,000 young people. Whilst coaching hockey and netball to young people in Fiji, Alex realised the far-reaching impacts and lifeskills sport brought into communities. Her experience in dealing with internal pressure, perceived failure and imposter syndrome stemmed the very successful Mintridge Foundation. Alex’s charity promotes sport to improve the mental and physical well-being of young people to help them find their pathway in life. Alex embraced her “just do it” attitude, found herself at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth games and ventured with various Olympians, paralympians and professional athletes. She provides a realistic journey of the challenges to becoming an entrepreneur and how you can transform negatives into positives. Tune in to find out how Alex took the leap from the English farmlands to the Olympic games!
