• How private equity is perceived by those on the outside, such as the mainstream media and the general public.

• If so, what can be done to facilitate greater transparency and access to information?
Alice also describes her journey from classics scholar to entrepreneur, the challenges she faced along the way, and her future plans for The Drawdown. Be sure to watch this space.
