Over to Peter…
1 – Could you tell us a bit about your background before you joined Fundamentally Children?
Before joining Fundamentally Children, I was a tennis coach for the past eight years. A pretty big change for me, but I’m loving my new role.
2 – Could you tell us a bit about your current role?
In my role, I am responsible for managing our current clients and generating new ones. It’s been great to meet so many innovative, forward-thinking companies and help them to achieve their business goals with our services.
3 – What’s the best thing about working in the children’s industries?
Keeping up to date with all the latest toys is great. I have two small children, so I’m going to be the coolest dad as they grow up and I know all about the latest toys to hit the market.
4 – And the Worst?
5 – Describe working for Fundamentally Children in three words.
Toys, Toys, Toys
6 – What’s your favourite industry event and why?
So far my favourite event has been the Toymaster Show in Harrogate. It had a really nice, personal atmosphere, and although it is one of the smaller shows, there are still some really big players there too. It’s nice to see such a wide range of companies coming together.
7 – If you didn’t work in your current role, what would you like to be doing and why?
I would love to be a professional golfer, travelling the world playing golf. Who wouldn’t? Although my wife may have something to say about that!
8 – What’s your all-time favourite children’s toy or app?
Scalextric – I loved it as a child and its fabulous play value is demonstrated through its impressive longevity. It’s still as much of a brilliant toy today as it was 30 years ago.
