Meet The Team – Daniel Pegram

Name: Dan Pegram

Position: Director

Start Date: October 2017

Why did you choose this background for your photo?

I love travelling and I think there is something special about a city at night. Something magical and exciting about starting a new day.

What do you enjoy the most about working at Flame UK?

The constant development and change that Flame UK embraces like nowhere else, growing and evolving in a business happens here daily. You got to find that inspiring.

What is one of the best things you have experienced in your life?

Wow, what a question, there really isn’t enough paper to print all my ‘best experiences’ but one of my passions is being part of peoples growth, setting and achieving goals has got to be high up on my list for sure.

If you could invite 3 celebrities over for dinner (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

Marcus Lemonis because he has an amazing love for people and always has the best solutions to deliver amazing results in business and people.

Ron G. Holland, as we have had very similar experiences in our first business endeavours, I would like to share stories and listen to his stories from ‘preaching’ positive self-talk around the globe, I would also like to know who the ‘affable Irishman’ from his book Financial Kung Fu really is!

Gordon Ramsey would be a must for me too mostly because I like straight-talking people and I want to see if he really does cuss that much.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A truck driver early on as that travel bug really does get to me, then a pilot and now I’m still not sure, but when I find out I will absolutely let you know.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I think this is such a tough question, I guess animals have tough life’s so I’m pretty pleased to be a human, if I did have to be an animal I would like to be a wild Brown Bear.

What is your favourite movie?

Trading Places, is my fav but I’m torn as I’m a huge Home Alone fan. I visit the house the McAlister’s lived in every time I’m in the Chicago, its’ like a pilgrimage for me.

What would you tell someone new starting at Flame UK?

Get comfortable with being able to really be you in the workplace, throw everything you feel you need to hold back on to one side and be very open for change, make sure you want to get the best out of yourself and be the best you there is.

 

 

Meet the Team – Abbi

Name: Abbi Pearson – Hockings

Position: Head of Waste

Start date: 29th August 2017

Why did you choose this background for your photo?

The background photo I have chosen is of me riding through the stubble fields. My mind always wanders while we explore the countryside and the overwhelming feeling of freedom is always so empowering. The combination of adventure, exhilaration and deep relaxation is the recipe for releasing stress or worries into the wind as it passes. I simply love it.

What do you enjoy the most about working at Flame UK? 

The thing I enjoy most about my job is that it is always changing, always evolving, and I get front row seats watching the process of simple ideas grow into great innovations. Every day is different, and it is a daily adventure for the whole team. Here at Flame UK, each individual is valued, the atmosphere is open, and the culture is a delight to be a part of every day.

What is one of the best things you have experienced in your life?

My best experience in life so far has been moving into my own house and gaining my own independence.

If you could invite 3 celebrities over for dinner (dead or alive) who would it be and why? 

Anthony Joshua because he looks like he has a great personality.

Oprah Winfrey because throughout her life, the odds have been against her, yet today she is one of the most wealthy and successful businesswomen in the world.

David Attenborough because his outlook on the world has been valued by so many people for such a long time. His contributions to the environment and creating worldwide awareness are so inspiring. He is also thought to be one of the most travelled people in the world, and I would enjoy hearing about his experiences and achievements. 

What did you want to be when you were younger?

An Equine vet.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a Beaver because they are creative, practical and well-organized.

What is your favourite movie? 

My go-to film is Pretty Woman; it is easy viewing and is just a classic.
