Watch the pennies and the pounds look after themselves.

If you had had a crystal ball, would you have done anything differently?
No nothing really, no regrets, we have always tried just to move forward.

Describe your most embarrassing moment.
Having spoken to a Australian trader briefly three weeks before, he turned up unannounced to check his thirty Toshiba machines only to find they had been sold a week before!

A wine taster for a vineyard in New Zealand.

Fine dining and good wine, or curry and a pint?

I love Italy.

Family and friends are very important to me, clay shooting, theatre, and eating out!
