My proudest / best business moment is/was… Becoming a director of the company that I’d worked at for 23 years.
My advice for 18-year-old me would be… Hang in there & back yourself because you’re on the right path. It might take you longer to achieve the things you want than you’d like, and it will be worth it in the end. There’s a few horrible things coming up that you’d give anything to change, and you’ll gain a new perspective by living through them.
My personal business hero(es) is/are… I only follow Steven Bartlett and Simon Sinek on Linkedin, so I’d have to say them.
Our company is… We are the premier Building Services Consultants in the Liverpool City Region with over 30 years of experience in shaping the landscape of the North West of England and beyond.
