Today we ask W2’s CEO, Director & Founder Warren Russell for his Six of the Best:

Best Holiday – We don’t go away that often (as my long suffering wife often reminds me) but when we do I really like to keep it simple and go away together as a family. Some of the best holidays we have had have been camping in the UK but one that does stand out for me was Tunisia which was our first holiday as a family of 5.

Best Album – I’m quite into my music and definitely lean towards the heavier end of the spectrum although my itunes playlist is quite eclectic. However there are probably two albums which always feature, Prodigy Fat of the Land and Prodigy Music for the Jilted Generation. That said, I tend to have a favourite album of the moment, so my favourite album today is Tu by Alien Weaponry.

Best Sporting Experience – I love my F1 but have only been fortunate to go to one, but it was before the age of the hybrid engine so got a proper rumble in my belly from the engines as they roared past. So the Grand Prix at Silverstone has to be up there for me, unfortunately Vettel won when he was racing for Renault, and I am not Vettels biggest fan.

Best Film – I have a pretty bad memory so I tend to be quite happy watching films more than once, however one that I can always watch, time and time again is Leon. Gary Oldman is fantastic and if you haven’t seen it then go and watch it tonight.

Best Book – I only tend to read when I am on holiday, and I tend to get through two or three books in a week/10 day holiday. I prefer non-fiction and probably one of the most interesting biographies I have read is Vinnie Jones.

Best App – Boring; BBC Sport or Sky Sports football.
