What are your ‘must haves’ to start the working day?
A coffee, a bowl of cereal and the World Service on the radio. I keep it simple, but it seems to work.
What’s your proudest work achievement to date?
Too many to choose from but, in principle, helping customers more accurately define what they need and then delivering it is foremost.
What do you love most about what you do?
The variety of work. Nothing we do at SVGC is ever the same, our customers‘ needs and requirements are so diverse it’s always changing. Being able to contribute at all stages from prospect to delivery is very satisfying.
What does your typical working day look like?
Mondays is largely admin and research (for prospects, projects or changes which would benefit SVGC) with the remainder of the week on client sites or ensuring compliance with our quality standards (9001, 2700 and 44001).
When you hit a wall workwise, what do you do to help overcome the hurdle?
Stare out of the window and think of other things or get out in the fresh air. The solution will usually sneak up on me when least expected!
