Who Inspires You In Business

Richard Branson is a man that inspires me in business for the simple fact he has made a once small time business now one of the leading brands in the world with nearly everyone in the world knowing who that man is. It takes a special and creative person to be able to achieve that stature in life.

What has been your biggest achievement in your career

The biggest achievement in my career to date bar starting with CheckdMedia in June 2018, was graduating Stafforshire University with a degree in Sports Journalism. I use all the tools and tricks that I have been taught for three years now in everyday life at my job. Working at CheckdMedia is my first job since graduating from University it really is a big accomplishment for me to be a part of such a growing business.

What do you do in your spare time

In my spare time I like to be involved in sports as it is my passion in life. I support Liverpool FC and follow them week in week out whilst also playing five a side twice a week. Horse racing is an obvious passion of mine and even when I’m not in the office I am still researching, reading and watching the sport because it is something I truly enjoy doing. Socialising with friends is a huge part of my life and any free time I get is spent relaxing with them.
