    On the pod with….Richard Skerritt from Skerritts Consultants

    British Airways i360 has partnered with a number of local businesses. We took a flight on the pod with Richard Skerritt, Managing Director of Skerritts Consultants, and asked him some quick-fire questions while he enjoyed the view.

    Skerritts 2 800x500I grew up in… Norfolk.

    Now I live in… Woodmancote.

    When I was a child I wanted to be… a vet.

    My first job was… putting jam in doughnuts.

    My career was most influenced by… my dad, whom I admire and respect enormously.

    The best piece of advice I was given was… I am no better than anyone else and no worse than anyone else.

    The worst piece of advice I was given was… you’ll look good with a perm.

    When I need inspiration I… go for a run.

    The biggest turning point in my career was… setting up Skerritts.

    I love what I do because… I get to work with and meet interesting people. 

    Not many people realise that… I was once a nude model. 

    Our customers love us because… we keep things simple and put our customers first.

    I love Brighton & Hove because… it’s vibrant and unique.

    My top tip for people visiting Brighton & Hove is… go to Etch by Steven Edwards for a culinary experience and then stay at the Ginger Rooms for some R&R.

    My favourite place in Sussex is… my garden to relax and feed my fish.

    In my spare time I… like to spend quality time with my six children.

    My claim to fame is… I once appeared in Coronation Street.
