Market trends affecting your sector, or likely to in the next five years?

I’m likely either reading the latest automotive magazines, gaming or playing remote controlled cars with my two sons.
Biggest career influence?
I’ve had an interest in Building Surveying since a very young age, inspired by my father who is now a retired Chartered Building Surveyor! Having completed A-Levels I went straight on to study a Building Surveying degree at the University of Greenwich, graduating in 2015. Starting employment within a Surveying consultancy firm in 2013, part time, I now have nearly 10 years of Building Surveying experience.
