When not at work, where would we likely find you?
Sailing with my husband and two kids. I had the joy in 2015 to be able to buy back a small sailing yacht my grandfather had built in the 1930s. She is a Bombay Tom Tit called Tania, short for Brittania and my mother was named after her. She’s my fourth baby, after Consilium!
Who is the person in your life you look up to the most?
My godfather – he is an incredibly successful businessman from humble beginnings, which is inspiring in itself, but also one of the most open and unprejudiced people I know. He welcomes anyone, from any walk of life and respects their views and beliefs, to the extent that he insists that his front door is open all day to welcome anyone who may want to drop by.
