What is the first thing you do every morning?
Hug my son

What is the best business advice you ever received?
If you don’t have the answer – say so. Find the answer and let the person know – they will respect you more than trying to bluff your way through.

Pink – it makes me smile

What is your favourite place on Earth and why?
Having a meal and glass of wine on our balcony at home – great view, great company – everything I need in the world.
