Describe yourself in three words:

Work – setting up and running a successful business for 15 years. Outside work – sailing my own (very) small boat (and family) across the North Sea for the first time.

Name your favourite place in east London and why:
Ballast Quay on the riverside in Greenwich – a sense of history, it’s on the river, good food and beer and when I am there, it’s always with friends and family.

Tell us one thing that people may not know about you:
I am a Charlton Athletic season ticket holder. Normally I like to keep it secret!

What would your super power be?
To be able to pick up and play like a virtuoso any musical instrument – people’s lives can be changed by music.

Tell us the best thing about working for East London Business Alliance:
The ubiquitous belief from everyone you meet that a solution for everything can be found in east London.

Complete this sentence ‘The absolute best thing about volunteering is…’:
Generally, the volunteer gets more out of it than the people or organisation they have helped – it’s a free tonic!
