What is the best business advice you ever received?
Keep it simple!!! Make everything in your life as simple as you possibly can. When you do this you will see that the most complicated things become achievable. My favourite saying is “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away” I make sure I create moments for others as well as myself that take their breath away!!

Green of course, lime green!!!! To me it stands for outdoor, green grass, fresh air, peace, tranquility, new beginings and all those good things.

Wow, this is a tough one as there are so many. I have been very privileged to have travelled extensively and I have a lot of favourite places – Venice, Sao Paulo, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Chenni, Hanoi, Bangkok, Milan, Madrid, London – far too many to mention but if I had to think very hard and only be allowed to give one answer I would have to say the mystical tranquil Hai Long Bay in Vietnam. Yup it would definitely be there!

If you were to ask me where would my favourite place be go to on Earth – well my answer would be New York for a work perspective and Cancun for pure fun!!!
