Industry Database

How I got into this industry…it seemed inevitable after growing up in a marine industry family and always having one foot in a race boat. Only sorry I didn’t join the team at Marlow sooner.

Best advice I've ever received...the best advice usually came from Bryan Willis in the form of a question, ‘is that the best way to do that?’ He would then walk off and leave you re–evaluating.

You should really read...Dale Carnegie - How to win friends and influence people

One thing the industry needs less of is...low quality cheap imports

Most hated buzzword or workplace expression…down-stream. I glaze over when anyone mentions down-stream

Best place I’ve been....it has to be a spot on the coast of Cornwall, but I am not saying where.

Don't worry about...yesterday. I never worry about yesterday, for me it’s about right now.

Favourite meal…fish for me please.

How I cope with stress…if you’re not up to your knees in water in 40 knots of breeze, then things aren’t really worth stressing about.

Something about you that people might be surprised by…I have the great honour of playing harmonica in a blues band with some very talented folk.
