Proud of the accomplishments they built up over their career, these senior executives are putting them to use.

- 'Success at a senior level in organisations depends to a large extent on your leadership skills,' says Duncan Tatton-Brown, Finance Director of DIY group B&Q. 'That includes your communication skills, presentational skills, your influence and the impact you have' - areas that Tatton-Brown has worked on consistently over the past five years. 'All skills can be developed and improved. For a finance director, presenting information with clarity and impact is very important.'

Tatton-Brown has worked regularly with Khalid Aziz of the Aziz Corporation to hone his presentational skills. 'The first time was before a presentation to a City audience,' he recalls. 'Khalid helped me understand that the underlying message you convey to an audience is about more than just the words on the slide.'
