His best piece of advice for those considering an apprenticeship is: “Try your hardest to fulfil your own potential, whatever that is. Not everyone wants to be a CEO but strive for what you want. If you end up going up the ladder, treat others as you’d like to be treated yourself. Be true to yourself, don’t try to be somebody or something you’re not, as generally you’ll get found out.”
