Being out with my family for a meal when a man approached me to say thank you for helping with his CV as he now has a job.

I love motorbikes so passing my bike test and taking a Ducati 748 round Cadwell race track still gets my pulse racing.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?

I saw this question being asked on a TV programme where the candidate said Russia. Thought that was a fabulous answer and the interviewers liked it too.
