Lee Hawkins

Why did you get involved with IAA PDC?
“To give back to the industry that served me so well for a couple of decades and also, to make new and fresh connections since becoming a full-time coach.”

What’s the best thing about the PDC?
“Much of what we provide is really practical advice, panels, events and inspiration that can help people in many stages of their careers. The other members are lots of fun to work with and it’s an enjoyable thing to work together to help others. Also….many of the events are held at cool tech start-ups and there is often free beer.”

What advice would you give to someone who was considering joining the committee?
“Get involved. It’s really not that much time to commit and the response you get from helping others is fulfilling. It won’t make you rich but it will help make you famous.”

How are you finding your time on the committee?
“Fun. Fulfilling. Fa – bu – lous.”

Why did you want to join the committee?
“Griff Leader made me. Mark won’t let me leave. I like to be connected, happy, have a laugh and help others.”
