Victoria Holloway, corporate marketing director, Queensberry

What is your involvement in sport?

Sport has always been a huge part of my life, I compete in an array of running events including marathons, half marathons, 10ks and 5ks. Combined with sport I do for pleasure; cycling, skiing, walking, Pilates and meditation.

How do you feel sport helps you in your day to day business?

I work in a busy environment having to focus on a number of different tasks at the same time, therefore sport allows me to clear by head and in turn helps discipline my mind and focus more on my day to day work. The importance and benefits of sport is underestimated by so many people.

How do you encourage your colleagues to get involved with sport?

I would actively encourage all my colleagues to get involved with sport, and this is something which Queensberry also understands the importance of, as happy staff gets better results. We previously entered a team for the Newport half marathon, we compete in a 5k charity relay run and support Teenage Cancer Trust.
