What attracted you to wanting to work in the creative industries - particularly account management?

I have always been a lover of business – I have been lucky enough to watch both of my parents run their own businesses, so have naturally been involved in the process. When I got to study business at school, it was the people side of business that interested me (I was happy to leave the finance to someone else!). When it came to choosing which degree course I wanted to study, I knew that communications interested me, and through a process of elimination I felt that advertising was something I wanted to learn about.
