When I was in school, I had a meeting with my head of year. He told me “In life you should always strive to be a problem solver, not a problem creator” , which has really stuck with me.

I bumped into my mum’s best friend at Geneva Airport once.
Question 6: Who is the most inspirational person you’ve met?
My friend Oscar, he has a visual impairment that will eventually leave him totally blind. Despite this he has an amazing outlook on life, he mountain bikes, whitewater kayaks, and is a Team GB triathlete.
Question 7: If you could meet anyone, from the past or present, who would it be and why?
I would be really interested to meet Captain Scott of the Antarctic, I have a framed picture of his ship in my house.

Face to face meetings are, in my opinion, the best way to engage and motivate teams. In my experience some of the best ideas come from breakout sessions/coffee break chats that simply don’t happen with virtual meetings.
