“I’m delighted to be involved in a programme where I can help or mentor a group for the Big Ideas Programme, the focus and need to be innovative around sustainability has never been more important, and I look forward to seeing the ideas generated.”

What do I do: I help to plan and supply a wide range of workers required to maintain and upgrade the railways, and I mainly focus on how we can get best value and efficiency for the projects we work on.

A bit about me: I like football, though mainly watching now rather than playing, and I try to get out to restaurants as much as I can too. I read a lot and listen to a wide variety of music, though not much from the weekly charts any more.
