Turning Point: Andy Moug, managing director, Titan Outdoor

A real turning point for me came ... in 2006. I'd been running my own training company and to many of my friends, I had the perfect work/life balance.

I had plenty of contracts and getting new work wasn't a problem. However, I did have a few insecurities - "Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach and those that can't teach, teach PE ..."

So when my ex-boss, outdoor visionary Bill Apfelbaum, phoned and said: "I'm definitely not buying Maiden, but if I did, would you come and help run it?", it piqued my interest.

I checked Maiden out with my outdoor mates, who assured me it was doomed, would only last six months, etc. This made it more appealing.

Titan Outdoor UK is now three years old. Rail and retail sectors are the fastest growing in outdoor and the 48-sheet market is still seen as the most cost effective.
