Which three people have inspired you the most – either at work or in your personal life?
Alan McCarthy, the former chief executive at Brighton & Hove City Council – a genuine civic leader with a passion for excellence in local government.
Richard Upton, the founder of the Cathedral Group – the most inspirational and innovative public private partnership developer, who ensures local people and communities are at the heart of each regeneration scheme.
Mrs Marshall - for keeping me grounded.
