‘It is all too easy to fall into the trap of thinking anyone who has reached the top of their particular tree has travelled in a straight line from their teenage years on and have had the cards always stacked in their favour……………………………… You don’t have to travel in a straight line; you can step back or start late and yet still achieve a fantastic amount.’
