“There are tonnes of opportunities in Cornwall and I think that it’s a case of going out there, finding them and putting yourself out there. Traditional perceptions of what Cornwall offers are starting to diminish. People think you have to go to the cities to get opportunities but there are a lot more people in the cities so the competition is just as fierce. If anything you can find some real gems in Cornwall, which you couldn’t find elsewhere.”
