What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
The best advice for me is that time matters. If you want to succeed, you need to think fast, act fast, and respond fast. Always come in first because the world doesn’t like laziness. Be bold, make a difference.
What recent book would you recommend and why?
The Penguin Island by Anatole France. The book as a whole deals with the root causes of all the problems of humanity that exist today. It does it in a very ironic language and offers good lessons.

For me, the best part is event day. After all the hard work is done the opening ceremony feels great!
