    Day in the Life: Robert Campbell


    It’s been another sleepless night thanks to either me thinking about the business, or the two kids bed hopping or both. Then it’s a 45-minute commute to work, which gives me time to come round and fine tune plans for the day. I also use this time to check and ...

    Day in the Life: Andrew Owens - the have-a-go entrepreneur


    My home is in the South West of England, but our customers, staff and operations are spread right across the country, so my working day is generally based around travel. I don’t have a typical working routine, and neither do I have a room or a desk in any of ...

    I am not an early morning person but will invariably be up by 6am. I have an arrangement with ’Mrs Mac’ that in return for helping our boys get ready for school, she makes me a hearty bowl of porridge. Yes, I have porridge every morning! I’ll check the ...

    Day in the Life: Variety means the days fly by for Murco’s Mike


    My day invariably starts off with the Tarzan call of the Chris Evans’ breakfast show at 6.30am (not everyone’s cup of tea I know, but the show gets me off to a good start). The first and possibly most difficult task of the day is getting my teenage son out ...

    Day in the Life: Raj Krishan


    My alarm goes off on a week day at 4.45am yes am! Then the first job of the day is to motivate myself to get up while wiping the drool from my mouth (joke). Seriously though, my day starts by checking my emails and messages ensuring that I deal with ...

    Day in the Life: There’s no such thing as a typical day for James


    I’ve always considered myself more of a night owl than an early bird but it’s impossible to ignore the wife’s 6.30am alarm. For her, living in Kent and working in London means an early train commute and for me, it’s a grumpy start and taxi duty to the station before ...

    Day in the Life: Simon MacKay


    The alarm goes off at 6.30am and Jess my four-year-old Labrador immediately comes bounding up the stairs and leaps on the bed. She knows it’s time for her breakfast and that all-important morning walk across the fields. This is the best time of the day as it gives me time ...

    Day in the Life: Sabrina Cader


    It is fair to say that I am not a morning person. After hitting the alarm’s snooze button several times, it is my husband’s threats that I will be late and left behind that drag me from bed. We aim to get a 7.55am train to London together, but we ...

    Day in the Life: Looking after the locals is key for Louise Hammond


    My day begins with the earth moving for me. Sadly, as I live near a railway line that just means the 6.40am train is passing by. At least it gets me out of bed in time to pick up my dog, Billy, from where he’ll be sitting by the treat ...

    Science and sailing keep Ed Wheeler on top form


    The past two months have definitely taken their toll on my body!

All three events ...
