Tell us something about yourself we wouldn’t expect?

Spent weekend at Sandringham with the Queen.


Why did you decide to become a trustee/ director for Premier?

The persuasiveness of Peter Kerridge!


Why is this important to you?

Premier has a vital place as a multi-platform communicator of Christian  faith and life in a culture rapidly forgetting its roots


What would you want with you if stranded on a desert Island?

My wife, she’s very practical!


If you could invite anyone (past/present) to be at your dinner party, who would you choose and why?

Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.


What is your favourite Bible verse?

2 Corinthian 5 vs 17 or John 10:10. They both express what I found when I became a Christian and have remained at the heart of my faith ever since.
