I have been in the luxury sector for over 25 years, and have dealt with these same clients around the world, but have never had their personalities sorted so perfectly with the relevant actions to take for each spelt out so succinctly. Brilliant.
I certainly wasn’t born into luxury however I grew up having an appreciation for it. Prior to pursuing my passion as a cake maker in the luxury market, I had two other successful careers which seemed diametrically opposed. The short version is that first, I became a Scientist working for many years saving lives in the NHS. Then after doing an MBA, I went on to become a Headhunter recruiting CEOs, Chairpersons and board level executives in the private and public sectors.
Life, I’ve found, is a lot like cake – the more delicious and complementary layers there are to it, the more exciting it becomes. In a good way my track record of transitioning from one completely different career path to another gave me the skills to succeed in the luxury market but I did not know it at the time.
