Living our values

“We don’t have many mandates for our children, save one. You must play one team sport. We aren’t trying to cultivate the next LeBron or Mia Hamm. We do, however, believe that learning to be a part of a team is critical to reaching one’s full potential. When a lesser gifted child wins the ‘heart and hustle’ award, kids are already understanding the power of team. It’s the greatest thing to watch unfold. Thus, I’m partial to the value “We succeed as one global team”.”

Julie's Story

Julie loves the challenge of being dropped in the trenches of a seemingly impossible mission and working together with dedicated and talented people to deliver outcomes that individually no one thought could be achieved. She quickly realised that the Apax initiatives are dynamic, interesting, and impactful assignments - challenging her in new and fulfilling ways every time. She is humbled when she is thanked by management teams for her contributions, as she feels she gets as much as she gives.
