Get to know Dr Ryan Duell

Meet Dr Ryan Duell

What do you like most about your job?

I enjoy learning something new every day and the interesting people I get to meet along the way.

Motto or personal mantra

For a few years I have liked this quote from Usain Bolt and try to apply it every day:

"Worrying gets you nowhere. If you turn up worrying about how you are going to perform, you have already lost. Train hard, turn up, run your best and the rest will take care of itself."

What do you like to do in your spare time?

With 2 young boys I wouldn’t say I have a lot of spare time. Any spare time I have is spent with my family.

Greatest fear?

Dying with regrets.

Where is your favourite place to be?

At the beach with my family.

Something surprising about myself?

On the 6th July 2017 I completed a successful solo crossing of the English Channel in 9 hours 59 minutes.

The last book I read?

Piranhas Don't Eat Bananas
