If you could have dinner with any three people in the world (past or present), who would they be and why?
David Bowie the ultimate rock god and my idol. Not only a brilliant musician and artist but also a wonderful sense of humour.
Jerry Seinfeld. We could talk about nothing and everything before heading off to the deli to grab the last babka.
Heidi Klum for a bit of glamour, the inside scoop on the next top designer and some suggestions on Halloween costumes.
If you could pick up a new skill in an instant, what would it be and why?
I’d love to be able to sing and save my poor suffering family having to listen to me sing off key.
If you could only travel back to the same holiday destination for the rest of your life, where would you pick and why?
New York City. Bright lights, big city, big red heart. It’s endlessly fascinating and can never run out of things to do, see and eat! When the pace gets too frenetic, what better place than Central Park or any of the terrific art galleries.
If you had to summarise your time at Pemba so far with one word, what would it be and why?
Remarkable. Being around for 17 years is a feat in itself! The company has grown and transformed over that time and I’m proud to have contributed. More importantly, the opportunity to work alongside the amazing team both within the business and the extended Pemba partner company family is truly invaluable.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Stay true to yourself and to what you want and need. Your path will not be the same as someone else’s, and that’s fine.
