What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“You can never escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say” - The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
I'm a naturally curious person. I love to find out more about a person’s story and the motivations that drive their choices.
Who is your favourite leader, and why?
Michelle Obama nailed it as a First Lady. She didn’t stand in her husband’s shadow and developed programmes that raised the profile of issues that mattered to her. Her honest upbringing and determination to fill a room with a positive message of what can be achieved is inspirational.
What is your favourite business book, and why?
Start with Why, by Simon Sinek, was a game changer for me. Identifying, understanding and communicating the purpose of an organisation is the key to unlocking its potential.
What tune do you sing in the shower?
Shine by Take That! "Don't you let your demons pull you down 'Cause you can have it all You can have it all So come on, oh come on Get it on I don't know what you're waiting for Your time is coming, don't be late, hey hey...."
What would you invent?
A dream machine. A headset gadget that would produce an animation of your night’s dream, perhaps revealing subconscious thoughts and hidden motivations. (Obviously there would be a dogs and babies version - what are those fidgety sleep movements about?)
