Favourite sport or hobby to watch/play?
Definitely Rugby Union. I played at school and my son played from juniors to the first team before university. I also attend the Six Nations every year.
How do you start your day?
I take my two springer spaniels for a walk. It helps to clear my mind and plan my day.
Most embarrassing industry moment?
Starting a domino effect with a full tray of Champagne glasses at the BOSS Awards. It was smashing!
What’s something new happening in your life right now?
I’m changing my working life from being full-time with one employer to a portfolio of projects for different companies. I’m branding myself as a NED (Non-Executive Doer).
Name three items on your bucket list.
A healthy and happy family. A 1969 225cc Lambretta – that actually runs well! Driving/riding around the entire UK coastline.
Favourite holiday so far?
A 2016 trip to Borneo. I went trekking in the rainforest and visited the surrounding islands. It was amazing.
What is the wildest thing you’ve ever done?
A 10-metre canyon jump into a small pool of water. The guide said, in a very heavy French accent, if you go to the left or right you will die. Aller tout droit!
Tell us a secret that your work colleagues don’t know about you.
I’m an avid fan of the theatre (particularly musicals) and ballet – especially anything choreographed by Sir Michael Bourne OBE.
If money was no object, what would you do all day?
It would be varied. Each day, I’d decide what, when and where for holidays, outdoor activities and skiing. It would also include spending meaningful time with family and friends. Plus a decent amount of cider.
Strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
A bowl of noodle ramen in Mong Kok (Kowloon district of Hong Kong). I had no idea what was in it, and I didn’t dare ask. But it was tasty.
