Yorkshire puddings are one of the county jewels
Sam Overment, managing director of business software Trade Chimp
What was your first job?
As a farm worker.
If you weren’t in your current position, what would you be doing?
Some other business adventure.
What was your worst mistake?
I guess probably trying to do too much and not realising the importance of focusing on something until it’s put to bed.
What’s your ideal day away from the office?
A busy day with my two children and my wife.
Name one person you would like to have dinner with and why?
Steve Jobs. I consider him to have had the greatest business mind of all time.
What was your best subject at school?
What are your hobbies?
Apart from work and family, I suppose snooker.
What would you do if you won the Lottery?
Put the money into Trade Chimp, and a lot of charitable work.
What’s your favourite item of clothing?
Jeans – without a doubt.
What’s your favourite time of day
I’m a morning person, which is the opposite to my wife.
What’s the best thing about Yorkshire?
Yorkshire puddings of course, and the countryside.
What would you like your epitaph to be?
A loving dad to Brooke and Elliott, and a lucky husband to Zoe. One of the good guys.
