“I’m usually up at 5am to go to the gym - it’s my favourite way to mentally prepare myself for the working day. Then I’ll head to the office at 8.30am. The first task of my day: running straight to the kitchen for a bucket of coffee before getting comfy at my desk!”

What’s something you have to get done every day no matter what?

“I must have made everyone on my team smile and laugh at least once!”😊
