STAFF PROFILE – Mike Ricketts

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

The best piece of advice I’ve ever received would have to be ‘Don’t worry about the things you can’t control but focus on the things you can.’

Name a place you have never been to and would like to visit. Why?

I have always wanted to visit the Amazon Rainforest. The sheer scale of it is mind blowing.

Who or what inspires you?

Individuals that have been classed as ‘disadvantaged’ by society but live a life just as full as any other. Seeing ‘less fortunate’ people enjoy what they have is extremely inspiring.

What is one of the biggest challenges facing energy customers today?

I feel the biggest challenge customers/consumers face today is the everchanging nature of the market and industry. With constant regulation changes, price spikes and conflicting opinions, our role in the industry becomes more and more prominent year on year. It keeps it interesting for people like me, motivating me each day to assist businesses understand and stay ahead.

What does a typical day look like for you at Edge?

A typical day for me is full of energy and fast paced. I am constantly looking for new ways to improve and grow the business whilst learning all I can about this complex industry. There is always something to do.
