John started his working life in Sales, working for a number of companies before landing himself in the role of Conference and Event Manager for an upmarket hotel in Gloucestershire. He took the hotel from 19th to 1st in its group, handling all aspects of the events from initial booking through to final invoice. Highlights of his time there include looking after the jockeys for the Cheltenham Races and running the reception for Lily Allen’s wedding.

His main passion outside of work is learning, Wing Chun, Krav Maga and Jiu Jitsu (although having had his first child has meant this has had to take a back seat), Strategy games on Xbox and looking after his new baby.

The thing that drives his missus mental is his constant fidgeting.
