Simon Barrington asks Jody how he applies his Christian faith and values to his work and how relationship is one of the fundamental keys to success in business.

This is really for me the key which is to see people as as God sees them. And when I do that it changes you, your heart softens, or you know it prompts you to ask more questions than you might ordinarily or if you racing around it with lots going on, it calms me down. I think actually you’re never going to get away from the fact that prayer is the starting point for me”
