How did you come to work at Wildfire?
See above… I had no choice.
What is your favourite event?
I am very proud of our Crystal Challenge event as we were one of the very first companies to provide this as an event and now everyone does. I really enjoy Clay Pigeon Shooting and Motorised as that is where we began.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I don’t tend to get a lot of it but when I am off I tend to get dragged to my various children’s houses to help them with house maintenance. Other than that I like travelling, going to new places on holiday and seeing some good friends.
What is your favourite film?
Top Gun – like a Wildfire event it has everything – entertainment, motivation, team bonding and a happy ending.
What is your favourite drink?
A nice cup of tea, Corona when out and sometimes the occasional whiskey.
What is your favourite food?
A good English meal – Shepherd’s Pie, Sunday Roast.
First album you ever bought?
Uriah Heap, yes I know but everybody in their early years had a bit of rock in them.
If you could meet one famous person dead or alive, who would it be?
David Beckham – someone who always acts with class and represents his country the correct way. Also a winner everywhere he has been.
Favourite place you have visited?
With Wildfire and in my social life, I have been lucky enough to go to some beautiful places. With work we were lucky enough to provide an event in Portugal, that was a great success from start to finish. The evening event was on the coast of Estoril and the day time event was in the countryside of Sintra, both beautiful parts of the world. Away from work I have been to a few far flung destinations, but one of my favourites was when I went to Hong Kong to visit my youngest son, who was working out there. The scenery is fantastic and it was an amazing experience.
What is your best memory of working for Wildfire?
My best memory of Wildfire is all the hard work we have put in as a family. With the support of our fantastic staff to come from a small family company who have a vast range of different activities and events.
