There are several reasons, starting with the fact that I have enormous respect for the Barclays brand and the decisions taken by senior executives during extremely tough economic conditions. The primary driver, however, was Barclaycard's strong commitment to growth, customers and innovation.
To make products far less complicated.
I'm inspired by everyday acts by everyday people - a mom at my kids' school who always knows the perfect way to deal with a tantrum or upset child; a musician on the street corner who's amazingly talented and enjoying life; a colleague who knows what customers need and how to deliver it.
Usually my young and energetic twins!
As a counsellor at a summer camp, I learned that I do not enjoy the great outdoors.
