I normally arrive at the office of the MOBO [Music of Black Origin] Organisation in Berners Street in central London for about 9.30am. We’re very fortunate to be part of almost a music village – we have [music licensing organisation] PRS and the Music Managers Forum in the same building, so we’re like one big happy family.

I know I’ll always stay late in the evening, so I don’t rush to get in early. If I have a day full of back-to-back meetings, I like to follow up on them straight away, while they’re fresh in my mind and I’m still energised – so I’ll just stay until I complete the task.
