Why did you become a trainer?

To take my career in the industry to the next level. I always wanted to be a teacher so to do it in something I am passionate about and pass on knowledge to help others raise standards within the industry is very rewarding.

Why is training important?

The industry we are in is constantly evolving and improving so it’s important no matter how much experience or knowledge you think you have, there is always something to learn to improve. All shops should have owners/managers/staff that have had some form of professional training.
