UK Overseas Trade Statistics for trade in goods with EU countries are released today, for October 20. I have always been interested in figures ever since I used to go walking with my Dad as a young person. We would start simple and work our way uphill as the figures grew. All done in my head as we didn't have a calculator in those days!

As the millennium approached, I was a hotel reservations manager looking for a new direction. An accountant who worked in the same hotel encouraged me to complete the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification. I completed it in August 2001 and was hooked, later becoming a fellow in 2014. As my first boss in the accountancy profession said, "I thought you were just mad enough to like accountancy!".
