Living our values

"I’ve been a keen amateur musician ever since secondary school and have played in many different bands over the years. The most enjoyable experiences have been with bands benefiting from a great group dynamic: different individuals pooling their efforts, talents and resources and committing to turning up whenever needed. The Apax value of “succeeding as one global team” resonates with me for the same reason."
