What’s your favourite travel destination in the world?
The world is too big, and varied, to have just one favourite travel destination – I love Skiing in the Alps, renting villas around the Mediterranean and short city breaks to soak up other cultures. Lockdown/Travel restrictions permitting, I hope to spend a few weeks in Asia in Summer 2021
Plan everything or keep it flexible?
Keep it flexible, I hate making plans outside of work.
Who has been your biggest influence?
I have had the privilege to work with many great leaders over my careers and I carry forward aspects of things I’ve picked up from each of them.
Fancy restaurant meal or homecooked comfort food?
After nearly a year of Lockdown, Fancy Restaurant Meal.
Early adopter or gadget challenged?
