What’s your favorite place of all the places you’ve travelled?
North and West Africa, which was the place that inspired my passion for the developing world. The place that started what was to become a career in international development.
If you were doing something else besides this, what would it be?
I am not sure I would want to work in any other industry, but if I did it would need to be something challenging, with scale, complexity and something that makes a positive impact.
