Q: Welcome to the Lumi-Plugin team! Can you tell us a little bit about you and your background?
A: My name is Greg Speed, I’m 25 and originally from Watford where I started off my working life as an apprentice engineer in the fire safety world at the Building Research Establishment where I managed to do a fair amount of travelling to countries such as India and Germany fairly frequently. I learnt many great things about the working world especially when I was sent out to India to complete fire testing in the middle of nowhere with a whole village population of around 200, watching you trying to extinguish fires. I developed a lot at BRE and then eventually moved into sales and the wholesale industry selling the products which I had worked with as an apprentice. It is fair to say I don’t mind trying things and being “adventurous” whatever that means.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: My real passion is Motorcycle racing and particularly anything that involves an engine. I currently compete in off-road classic motocross where I won the British championship for the first-time last year in 2019. I love sports such as cycling and running and do as much as I can however, I am a sucker for good music, movies and food/beer.
Q: Favourite food?
A: This is a real difficult one for me as I am a lover of all kinds of food but if I had to narrow it down to one, it would have to be between either Spanish food such as Tapas and Paella as I spent a lot of time around Madrid where you can sit, eat and drink all day long. The other cuisine I love is Thai food, with a number of favourite dishes that I like.
Q: Where’s your favourite place in the world?
A: My favourite place I have been would have to be France and more specifically the coast off south of France, however nothing would beat having my own transport and travelling around Europe.
Q: What are you looking forward to doing at Lumi-Plugin?
A: I am looking forward to being at the forefront of the business, showcasing what a great product Lumi-Plugin really is and seeing how much it will help different people in different ways. I am excited about helping the Lumi-Plugin range on its journey as it is fair to say there is nothing else really like it.
