Sunday Times article: Meet Danny Forsyth

At 16, Danny Forsyth lost his mother, his home and his way. He found his feet thanks to a job selling Sunday Times subscriptions at Interact.

If you have ever received a friendly phone call trying to tempt you to subscribe to The Sunday Times or to renew your subscription, because — perish the thought — it has lapsed, you may have heard the dulcet tones of Danny Forsyth. He began working as a telesales agent six years ago, when he was homeless.

He was just about getting by, sleeping in a friend’s living room. He saw an ad on the classified ad site Gumtree for a job at Interact, a company based in Richmond upon Thames, southwest London, which works with Times Newspapers, among other companies.
