'Turnover is vanity, cash is sanity'

The moment I thought I'd made it was..."Whenever we win a really big client we always celebrate. In business you've got to understand why you won, just as when you lose you have to understand why you lost."

The best advice I've ever been given was...

"My mother was a big influence and she had a saying: 'Turnover is vanity, cash is sanity' - and in the early stages of CPL that certainly stood us in good stead.

The most broke I've ever been was..."I went to France when I was 20 and arrived in Paris with the equivalent of about €10. I hitched on my own to Nancy and got a lift with a young couple, then I couldn't find the address I was staying and they drove around for two hours to find my place. They were different times."

The best thing that money has bought me is...

"The freedom to make good choices."

My passions outside of business and family are... "Those two take up a lot of my life. I am passionate about supporting people starting business and women in business."

My greatest extravagance is... "Shoes. I love all sorts of shoes."

The best trip I've taken recently is... "To Italy. I always love going there."
