Away from Crawford Strategic and family I am a keen runner with a passion for running long distances in harsh environments. The photo's accompanying this text were taken in the Sahara desert, Amazon jungle and Namib desert during three of the toughest footraces on earth, I competed in and completed all three.
I consider myself fortunate to have graduated from the Trusthouse Forte Plc fast-track management scheme and be trusted with a number of business units in my late teens and early twenties including restaurants, hotels and petrol stations this provided an incredible jump-start to my career.
