      Sir Frank Whittle, he is credited with the invention of the Jet engine. He struggled through adversity and proved all the doubters wrong by bringing his idea to life.

      Now we couldn’t imagine life without it and his invention carries hundreds of thousands of people around the world each and every day.

      Hmmm this ones a toughy…

      I wouldn’t really say that any single person really motivated me. Remember that in my line of work it is very rare that someone does something by themselves; it’s almost always a big team of people! I’ve always been more motivated by the thought of my own future – the thought of where I could get myself if I really focus on it 😛

      Sorry its taken me a while to reply!
