Favourite film: 12 Angry Men – it’s easy to follow the crowd. Be the voice of reason and back yourself.
Favourite book: Black Box Thinking by Matthew Syed – it’s made me look at life in a different way by understanding that one of the most important factors is to learn when things go wrong and therefore to have no fear of failure.
Guilty pleasure: I find it very difficult when I pay for fuel to walk away without a bar of Yorkie or Galaxy
