Pambula… maybe that’s why I’ve had 30 years of travelling here with family and friends.

Last good book, podcast or film?

JoJo Rabbit – a very confronting comedy-drama.

Exercise: golf, walking or gym. Failing which a glass of red wine always helps.

The best advice that I was given in my early days is that you never stop learning!

I enjoy both the challenge to find the best outcome and the client’s trust in the advice being given.
