What brought you to this industry?
What’s the most exciting thing about your job?
Being part of a growing company! It is also exciting to watch a project come together, from the initial enquiry stage right through to completion, and for the customer to be pleased with the outcome. It is also exciting when we are able to offer a solution that the customer hadn’t considered especially if this includes costs savings!
Who inspired you most in your career?
My Father, he has always told me that with hard work I could do anything I put my mind to. He also has a great ‘mantra’ which is ‘Tell the truth and shame the Devil’. In my experience people might not always want to hear the truth but they will respect you for it, and they can then at least deal with the real siutation.
If you were an item in a warehouse, what would you be?
I think I would be some kind of articulated Fork Lift because I have to deal with all aspects of the business, not just specialise in one area.
If you had to do it all over again, what would you do different?
I’m not sure I would do anything different. I have made mistakes like everyone, but you have to make them to learn from them – nothing can teach experience!
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you at work?
I’m not sure I should disclose that!
Who or what makes you laugh?
My two daughters age 10 and 6 make me laugh all the time, and I always have a laugh with my friends – although the cocktails may have something to do with that!
Do you have any hidden talents?
I like to sing and dance! I won a talent competition for singing when I was 10 and still like to have a go on Kari-Oke!
Who would be your favourite party guest?
What is the greatest luxury in your life?
What is your favourite guilty pleasure?
Chocolate? Coronation Street? Both!
Do you have any secret ambitions?
Yes! (they are a secret).
What’s your dream holiday destination?
Anywhere hot and sunny!
What are your three favourite movies of all time?
Too many to mention, but amongst them – Shawshank Redemption, Jaws, more recently, Rise of Planet of the Apes & War Horse.
What is your favourite book of all time?
One favourite book is hard, but I like authors like Jodi Picoult and Martina Cole right now, along with auto biographies.
What’s your favourite pastime?
Watching a good movie, going to see a band, the theatre, sitting in the sun reading, time with family and friends – driving my car with some old rock music playing – loud!
If you won the Lottery, what would you do?
Throw a big part for my family and friends and then enjoy it!
What would be your advice to someone thinking about coming into the industry (apart from “don’t do it”)?
Be prepared to juggle a lot of balls at once!
