What do you wish you’d known at the very beginning of starting in yourcurrent industry that you know now and how do you work alongside the Giftwareindustry? I wish I had joined a debtcollection agency years ago instead of working with solicitors all my careerand thus saved clients large sums in respect of Court fees and solicitors costsbeing thrown away.

Do you feel the economic climate is improving or is it getting tougherto trade? Giftware is generallyconsidered ‘a luxury’ and is often the first to be hit when the economy is bad.That is why so many clients use us to recover their monies.

What do you see as being the biggest problem for gift producers? As with any business, finding that unique item thateveryone wants.
