Warwick Best,


I am originally from Cornwall, although I now live in a small village near Loughborough, Leicestershire. I have had various jobs these include being a chef, a pub landlord and running various night clubs. My last job had a dual role firstly as a senior university lecturer specialising in motivation. Secondly as an industry consultant to various pub chains such as J. D. Wetherspoon, and Everards. I took early retirement in 2010 and became a trustee at mosaic in 2011.

I was introduced to mosaic by a very dear friend of mine and have been stuck ever since!

I had a wonderful time raising money for the new Sunbeam boat, Sunbeam II and still hope to raise much more!
