The secret of my success. I have a great capacity to be a chameleon, moulding myself to whatever situation I'm in. That's my main strength, as well as never taking no for an answer.

My biggest career lesson. Not everyone will like you. I used to spend time fretting over client relationships which didn't click, but now I've learnt to surround myself with people who are on my wavelength, like sports people, entertainers and entrepreneurs. We bring the best out in each other. It's about being respected.

My best piece of advice. Good grades are not enough any more - you need to try lots of things to stand out from the crowd.
