Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I’m interested in starting a new career in music and film and have been asked to audition for the next part of James Bond. I did meet with the director Sam Mendes many years ago when I was living in Florence Italy and happened to be sitting at the same restaurant having lunch. I had arrived and parked directly in front of the restaurant in my black Aston Martin DBS was wearing a rather sharp suit from Louis Vuitton at the time walked in and sat down and ordered some lunch, I happened to be on the table right next to Sam Mendes and I remember overhearing him turn and say to the other guests on his table “look that’s a real-life James Bond, I direct the fake one in the movies but here we have a real one but he must be Italian” I couldn’t help myself, so I turned around and said in my most English accent “no I am English actually and thanks for the compliment”. He immediately started laughing and offered me a drink and then we had a little chat and he said I should audition for the role as the acting was any interest to me as he thinks I look the perfect part for it.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
You have to work hard and keep on what you believing sometimes it will be difficult sometimes people tell you that you can’t succeed but if you know in your own mind that you’re right and that you’re doing what you need to be doing to succeed continue on your own path.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
When I was 16 my mother gave me £500 to help me start the first company by making some adverts and publicity that’s where it all started for me ever since then I’ve had the entrepreneurial bug and I have continued to try and achieve a greater level of success than most would think possible.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I give a lot back to charity and have over the years given many tens of thousands to the various churches and children’s aid as well as cancer research I think it’s important to give back to schemes that can potentially help the greater and wider public and I think as a species we need to continue to evolve.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
