Live comedy, Ben Elton is a favourite.

What did you last do for a customer that went the extra mile?

I assisted a top-level CEO who was travelling from Australia to India to sign a large contract to obtain an Indian visa in Singapore whilst he was in transit en route as he didn’t realise his last visa had already expired and he had to be in India by a set date.

Favourite place you have visited anywhere in the world?

The Maldives arriving at the resort by seaplane transfer was totally amazing as well as the barefoot policy at the resort which was a nice touch.

Have you met anyone famous?

I have met Queen Elizabeth II representing the British Red Cross in the ’70s at a youth event, sadly I didn’t get invited to the palace for afternoon tea. I have met a number of famous sports stars, authors and actors as a result of travelling or arranging travel.
