The best part of my job is working at the forefront of wireless technologies and global standards that have helped to connect more than 3.5 billion people globally. It is exciting to be able to contribute to 5G development that will enable richer, smarter and more convenient living, working, as well as bring positive impacts to a diverse range of industries, society and people.

Managing Partner EME, Reed Smith
What is the best part of your job?
Participating in the development of young lawyers brings me a great deal of satisfaction. It goes without saying that I enjoy helping clients achieve their aims with regard to their business operations, but in my leadership position I also have responsibility for other lawyers whose careers depend on our collective effectiveness in the marketplace. It is particularly gratifying to see successful colleagues and protégés use their experiences to further inspire and motivate their own juniors to become successful; this is real “pay it forward” in action.
Katie Alcott MBE
Founder & CEO of FRANK Water
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is seeing the impact that our work has on the most marginalised communities in India and Nepal. Water is the most basic of human needs, and rights, so the cascading developments that it brings is phenomenal. Women and girls bear the brunt of unsafe or lack of water, so seeing how it enables them to flourish is always emotional.
Tina Ghazimorad
Senior Producer, Manoto TV
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is having an opportunity to inspire and to have an impact on the lives of millions of people through the work that I produce; especially when it comes to the historical documentaries and TV shows. I believe it is very that the new generation understands their history, as I believe we can not go forward without understanding the past. Therefore, a large part of my work to date has been to counter any historical falsification by the current Iranian regime and to mitigate the obscuring effects of time.
