If you weren’t in your current position, what would you be doing?

Travelling the world!

What was your worst mistake?

Not listening to my gut instinct and starting my own business years before I did.

What’s you ideal day away from the office?

Heading off to the countryside for a leisurely walk, followed by a picnic, then a movie at home snuggled up on the sofa.

Name one person you would like to have dinner with and why?

Oprah Winfrey. I really admire her work, both in charity and as an entrepreneur.

What was your best subject at school?


What are your hobbies?

I always make time for reading at the end of every day.

What would you do if you won the Lotto?

Pay off my mortgage and that of my parents. I’d still work as I love what I do, but it would allow me to hire more staff to take care of the more mundane tasks, leaving me to pick and choose what I do. Of course I’d also take a year (or two!) out and travel and show my daughter how amazing the world is.

What’s your favourite item of clothing?

At the moment, some heels shoes I got from Red Herring.

What’s your favourite time of day?


What’s the best thing about Yorkshire?

The greenery, fresh air, access to countryside within a five-minute drive. Country pubs, open fires, fish and chips and Sunday lunch!

What would you like your epitaph to be?

Lisa Burton – Inspiring, caring and passionate about life and a devoted mother and wife.
