What is the best thing about working at B2B International?

I enjoy the people – they are professional, friendly and helpful. It’s a good, informal and easygoing atmosphere.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Stop talking and listen.

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

Paris. I can’t say specifically why – it just feels relaxed, like a home away from home.

What is your favourite book?

My favourite books are The Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin (excellent characters and plot), The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson (superb main characters) and The Mermaids Singing by Val McDermid (intelligent and quite brutal, if not a little disturbing on first read).

What is your favourite pastime?

I enjoy spending time with my daughter. In addition to that, I enjoy reading and cooking.
