    Best motoring moment
    I am passionate about classic cars and spend much of my spare time keeping my MG and Porsche 911 running smoothly. For me, when I have resolved a quirky problem which has required a somewhat unconventional solution, I love then being able to take the car out onto the hills around Huddersfield when it is running at optimal performance.

    Best business advice you’ve ever received?
    When choosing your role, pick something you really love to do. Do it with enjoyment and be prepared to do the things that nobody else wants to do. Chase fulfillment and success will follow.
