I have two interrelated objectives: thinking strategically about growing our business at the same time as directing and managing client accounts.

What is the best thing about working at B2B International?

We are completely aligned with our clients in that we grow our business by helping them grow theirs. And we do this in an environment of constant variety, change and surprise.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

If a result looks wrong, it usually is.

What is your favourite place you have visited – and why?

I always enjoy returning to Beijing and Shanghai. Entrepreneurship is everywhere – on a scorching hot day in Shanghai, orange juice salesmen instantly morph into umbrella salesmen when the heavens open.

What is your favourite book?

I like most of Bill Bryson’s books. The way he uses anecdotes to illustrate the way things are done in a particular place is insightful but above all hilarious.

Favourite pastime

Running long distances in hot weather.
