As a mentor on the programme, I spent several weeks working with Year 8 children from Oaks Park High School in Ilford. I really enjoyed the challenge of working and mentoring the students to develop their Big Ideas into real, sustainable solutions.

It was amazing to see these young children come up with such innovative ideas, and to interact and work in their teams to develop, research and put together a business plan. 

It was a wonderful experience and I would do it again without hesitation.

What I do: As the Head of Safety Health & Environment (SHE), I work with my SHE team to develop and implement safe working practices, ensuring that we are not only legally compliant but most importantly that our employees work safely, do not get injured and go home safe.

A bit about me: I am an Ex-Royal Engineer, having spent 22 years in the forces.  I enjoy travelling, researching my family history and spending time with my family.

Region: South East.
