About me: Sean started his career with five years’ experience in finance, working in the financial institutions group at National Australia Bank and corporate development at Tradeweb. Prior to joining the MBA programme at London Business School, Sean founded an early education centre in Australia. Here he was responsible for establishing, growing and managing the sale of the regulated nursery school, which employed 15 staff to educate 60 children under the age of five years old. Having experienced the tangible impact of sustainable social enterprise, Sean took the decision to study with the mission of having a positive impact on socially-minded business.

Sean chose LBS for its global reach, prominence in the impact investing industry, and notoriously active social community. He is actively involved in on-campus activities such as the MIINT Turner competition, Hermes GPE competition and industry treks.

Three topics I can be approached about: Entrepreneurship; impact investing; London startup ecosystem
