Studio Guest Matt Horton on Scots Speak With Janice Ross on Tues 19th Mar 2019 6 – 7pm
Scots Speak this week is the lovely Matt Horton who is Honourable Secretary and Treasurer of the Glasgow Humane Society. As a boy he learned the ropes on his dad’s fishing boat and as soon as he could leave school he applied for a job at sea, never believing it would be his career. Joining BP as an Engine Room Boy at the age of 16, he sailed the seven seas and found himself caught up in events like volcanic eruptions and war. Eventually he gained his Chief Officer’s ticket and sailed as Chief Officer for several years before coming ashore to become a training officer with Clyde Marine Training. He is now General Manager of Clyde Uniforms and advises the shipping sector on uniforms, as well as, advising various public bodies on safety and accident prevention on waterways.
