Meet the leadership team – Gavin Peters 

If you could travel back in time to your younger self, what advice would you give? 

Worry less about the stuff that feels most urgent right now, and think more about the bigger picture. 90% of what we think is the most important thing in the world at the time is forgotten about a few months later, and gets in the way of what really matters. That took me a longtime to realise, and I think I’m still learning it. 

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Mint choc chip. Is that controversial? 

If you could have any job for a day, what would it be? 

Probably a professional athlete. I enjoy sport despite being horribly average at best at most of it. I’d love to have some extreme co-ordination and fitness for a day to see how it feels. But then the comedown again afterwards might be a bit depressing. 

If you could have dinner with any historical figure, who would it be? 

John Lennon. I’d love to listen to his stories about how quickly everything changed from the early days of Mersey Beat and moptops to protest songs and psychedelia. When I was a kid I used to go through my dad’s vinyl and I loved the pictures on the blue album and red album where you compare these young, fresh-faced kids when they started out, to what I thought at the time was a bund of old dudes in their 50s. I was blown away when I learned that they were still in their 20s when they broke up. I still am… we think things move fast now, imagine changing music like that in just a few years and being an ex-Beatle before you hit 30! 

What is your favorite hobby outside of work? 

Probably unsurprisingly after my last answer, I’m a bit of a music buff. Though when it comes to what I listen to, I’m finding less and less in Spotify’s ‘new releases’ and that I’m having to search out things away from the mainstream… but that’s NOTHING to do with getting older, right?
