Managing director, Berwin & Berwin
“In this business you have to understand people and be able to understand their point of view. People skills are essential to my job.
“This is the most exciting business to be in and is a great mixture of fashion and business and variety. In one day I can be in Leeds, then London and end the day in Madrid. It’s an industry that people outside the industry are interested in because they can identify with it.
“I was advised never to give up – and my advise to others is exactly the same. But also remember that people always come first.”
