What do you like most about the industry?
Having grown up in a natural rural environment and with children of my own who spent their pre-school years in the African bush, I love being involved in an industry that promotes getting children outside – stimulating their development and encouraging healthy active communities – something I’m completely passionate about.

What do you like most about PSC?
We’re committed to designing effective recreational spaces.  There’s no point wasting time and money putting something out there that the community aren’t going to gain the maximum benefit from.  Multi-generational playspaces – if the adults are happy to be there, the children will come.

What was your highlight at PSC so far?
Seeing my own children and their friends playing for the first time at one of our playgrounds – and them not wanting to leave.

Why was it a highlight?
It reminds us why we do what we do!  We strive to promote challenging, continuous play – but seeing my own children being challenged and having so much fun, like I’d never seen them in a playground before – reinforces the importance of providing innovative equipment and design.

What is your favourite recreational item we provide?
There’s no one favourite – it’s more about the combination of challenge and appeal. Keeping kids and communities engaged, keeping them coming back so that we can promote healthy active communities.

What’s your Motto in life?
Positive energy is the stimulus to so many great things – good energy is contagious, share it!
