Life is a series of unexpected twists and turns – enjoy the good ones and let the bad ones make you stronger and wiser.

Qualifying in 1991 knowing I had no more formal exams to sit ever!

It allows engagement with other Professionals in our great city from smaller events to large dinners and conferences. Their online service is invaluable, especially in this current climate.

Great British menu – preparing to dine out again… whenever it is safe to do so.


  1. Favourite meeting place in Manchester?

Any roof top terrace when the sun is shining – The Ivy, 20 Stories etc. On a cooler day, the King Street Townhouse Hotel is a good meeting place, and only a stone’s throw from the Quilter Cheviot office.

Eating and drinking, I think this maybe a favourite pastime of many at the moment. I am looking forward to revisiting Manna, Manchester first Michelin starred restaurant!

I am sure my family would agree, my best role is the BBQ which has seen plenty of action! My homemade burgers are divine…even if I do say so myself!

All rather mundane I am afraid.

That’s an easy one, changing bed linen!

No but my colleague David Miller has an award winning one!

This one is very easy – seeing my eldest daughter who is working frontline at Royal London Hospital and giving her a huge hug!
