What aspects of your job do you enjoy the most, and why?
The company ethos and enjoyment in working for a business that designs and sells various products that bring happiness to children and adults of many ages.
I also enjoyed seeing 5 trampolines and 4 large swings in the warehouse knowing they are ready to be transported to exciting new parks…round the world.
What is the best advice you have been given in life?
To treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to and that respect is earned, not given
Favourite Inclusive Play product and why?
The Orb rocker as you can have fun with your friends, children and parents all together – you are never too old to sit on the Orb Rocker. Likewise, you are never too old to Scribble on the Scribbler!
What is your next adventure / goal?
Considering a miniature triathlon … before I get old….
