Dr Fishman began his career as a health professional. After noticing that many of his patients were presenting with diseases caused by a sedentary lifestyle, he enrolled in a post graduate qualification in transport planning and set up his own transport consultancy specialising in active and sustainable transport (Institute for Sensible Transport).
