Which European country that you have not yet visited is top of your list to see, and why? It would probably be Greece, amazing landscape and interesting to see the dichotomy of a nation that was once at the forefront of philosophy and technology in comparison to its recent struggles.

What is your speciality dish to cook? Harissa Spatchcock Chicken.

If you were to give one suggestion to the CEO of LinkedIn, what would it be? Revamp the newsfeed/timeline so that the balance of posts is readdressed, especially in relation to promoted items.

What is the most enjoyable book that you’ve read recently? Conn Iggulden’s ‘Conqueror’ Series – I’m a sucker for historical fiction!

What would be your karaoke song? Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore.

Who would be the guests at your dream dinner party? David Attenborough, Napoleon Bonaparte, Queen Elizabeth II and Macklemore – an odd combo but I think the conversation would be fascinating!

What do you most enjoy about working in executive search? The opportunity to speak to interesting people from a variety of positions, industries and nations.

Mountains or sea? Probably mountains, I’m quite an active person and on balance there is more to do in the mountains than at sea level, especially as I can’t dive anymore!

What is your favourite film? Tough one, but ‘The Nice Guys’ was hilarious.

What would you rather fight – 20 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck? 20 duck-sized horses for sure, I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of a giant duck!
