Work Highlight: There have been many but I enjoy helping clients, particularly in resolving difficult issues where we have to think creatively and pull together teams from different disciplines with very different skills. I have been lucky to work with some really clever and committed people over the years which makes my job much easier, enjoyable and rewarding.

Favourite Hobbies: Golf, particularly playing new courses across the UK with friends, and travel, with family, to warmer climes.  If I can combine these two interests, all the better, and we particularly enjoy Portugal where I can golf with my son, then relax with the rest of the family by the pool.
