'I was supplying cars to Liverpool FC's players'

Q&A: Scott Hamilton

Q: What's the best piece of business (or life) advice you've ever been given?

A: Enjoy what you do and do the basics brilliantly.

Q: What piece of advice would you pass on to someone starting out in business?

A: Ask yourself if you can do better. If you can, do!

Q: What was your best business decision?

A: Starting I loved what I did before, but this was the chance to start something from scratch.

Q: If you weren't doing this job, what would be your other career?

A: Probably still running car dealerships or a role within the automotive sector.

Q: What was your last holiday? Where are you going next?

A: I've just been skiing in Andorra for a week. I love it and the resort, it's great for families. A week in Sitges outside Barcelona is next on my list.

Q: What are your hobbies/interests?

A: I love sport but particularly football, skiing, golf and horse racing. Other than that, food, films and reading.

Q: What is your favourite sport and team?

A: I am a huge Liverpool fan and was lucky enough to live and work there, supplying cars to the players.

Q: How would you describe your early life?

A: I would like to think I always worked hard and enjoyed the results of that.

Q: Have you any economic predictions?

A: Given the current climate, I am worried about any predictions. Brexit, and our own political environment, is creating so many uncertainties. The only thing I can predict is that we are only at the start of a process of change across Europe and the EU and perhaps globally. That could turn out to be a good thing. Or it may not, given what we see in the USA, Russia and China.
