I am the Sales Manager at Westbound, looking after the groups Sales Force.

I have been with the company for 8 years in which time has seen the company grow and I am glad I have been able to head up an ever growing and successful Sales Team which now spans across 3 offices in the UK.

We deal with new customers from high street stores or first time importers beginning their journey.

How are you preparing?

So, an old head master once told me, ‘proper preparation prevents poor performance’ the famous 5 P’s. Preparation in this instance could have seen me spend more time climbing hills, than frequenting local pubs.

I have however stepped up the training in the last 2 months on the cardio, but have always been in the gym doing weight training at least 4 times a week….. contrary to my cheese string like physique.

What are you most looking forward to?

I have always been an individual that likes to push himself in every scenario and will embrace challenge. I am looking forward to the sense of accomplishment and being able to push myself mentally as well as physically. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to that first drink after completing it also!

What are you least looking forward to?

The lack of sleep I think will be the killer. I struggle to sleep on moving things so getting in some tactical sleep or just making sure I am full of energy drinks will be key. We are doing this with a great bunch though so keep positive and helping each other out is essential.

 Are you taking a mascot?

My sister is taking part in the same challenge so technically she is! She is full of energy, and I am looking forward to her being on this with me.

 Is there a reason for you doing it?

There are a few charities that we are raising money for, Parkinsons being one. My Dad was diagnosed with it so I would like to play my part in helping whilst also pushing myself.
