 Jean Evans Profile

Hobbies, Interests, and Family:

With three young kids, there isn’t too much time for hobbies and interests.  I’d have to say that drinking coffee would be right up there, but that’s from a general lack of sleep 😊 I have an 8, 6 and 2 year old, so after work, comes spending time with family and creating experiences and memories for them. #FamilyTime. After that, the aim is to be healthy, whether it’s getting some exercise into the week and getting the kids involved too with walks by the beach followed by a sneaky ice-cream!  I do like to bake, but don’t get to do it too often. We are changing to a predominantly plant based diet in our house, so there’s a lot of learning in that, but it’s an interesting challenge and opportunity in our lives.

What is your latest favourite business book, movie or quote?

I’m on a big business book buzz at the moment.  I’d have to say that one of my favourite books is Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed.  It’s an absolute must read for anyone in business. I’ve so many more that I could list. I share them out through my various networks and just love getting ideas from other people who read books in different areas that I might not be familiar with. #AlwaysBeLearning

If you could choose anyone to be your life/business mentor for one year, who would you choose, and why?

I’d love to spend time with Michelle Obama. Having read her book, I really admire her values and ethos, her stamina, her perseverance, her steadfast values.  She abounds with integrity, family values and comes across as such a warm, dynamic, interesting, charming and intelligent lady. She has accomplished so much and is an advocate for those less fortunate. I have a bit of a crush on her to be honest

If you won the Euro Millions Lotto what would you do?

For the family, I’d pay off the mortgage and all debts for us and my extended family. I’d always be working, but would divert my energies to volunteering and developing businesses to help others become self-sufficient.

If you could choose 5 people to sit and have dinner with, who would they be and why?

Michelle and hubby Barack would be there for sure!  What stories they would have to tell!  I’d be mesmerized. I’d probably have Michael McIntyre to keep us entertained. I’d have my life partner and colleague, Brian McDonnell along for the ride (also because he’d be cooking the dinner!) and then Matthew Syed. I think that would be an all round interesting evening and lots of conversation!

What is the most important thing for you about being a part of Highline Office Technology?

Being part of a family business that is growing and excelling. Being part of a business that cares about its customers and really strives to deliver #ServiceExcellence, despite all challenges…and let’s face it, when you are dealing with technology, there is always a challenge.

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

A horse. Majestic, elegant, intelligent, dynamic, caring.
