read: Mastering the Rockefeller Habits by Venre Harnish. I sent it to all the entrepreneurs I invested in.
BestLion — it’s unbelievable to think it’s a true story. It’s about a little boy aged five who gets lost on a train which takes him thousands of miles across India, away from his family. He was eventually adopted by a couple in Australia and twenty five years later with the help of Google Earth and vague memories he was able to make his way back to his mother.
I love fashion, so Alexander McQueen’s ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibition at the V&A was incredible. He famously said ‘I want to empower women. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress’. He was a genius.
Well being a ‘Galway Girl’ myself, I am loving this particular track on Ed Sheeran’s latest album.
FirstFor me it was my first Madonna concert!
The O show by Cirque de Soleil in Vegas was standout; and for pure entertainment factor, Robbie Williams at Knebworth was brilliant.
I’m so busy at the moment with work and kids that I don’t really have time to watch TV. Most of what I watch is on playback and I’m finding Catastrophe hilarious; Sharon Horgan is very clever.
listening / podcasts I love listening to BBC Radio 4, in particular Desert Island Discs with Kirsty Young. I also listen to the WIRED podcast whenever I can.
Bagatelle (they played at our wedding!), Van Morrison, Rhianna.
Having lunch with the Queen of England at Windsor castle and accompanying her to Royal Ascot races for a day was incredible, Also, my nine-year-old daughter Eve’s face when she met Niall Horan from One Direction.
I would love to go back to the Greek and Roman times as I love the fashion style the ladies wore back then... very elegant and goddess like!
Spotify, Sonos, Apple Music has changed the world of home entertainment, I would have loved to have been the genius behind one of them.
I know the best jump jockey that world has ever seen… AP McCoy!
AP and I are ambassadors for a small but incredible charity called Tiny Tickers. They are the only charity doing the work they do, Tiny Tickers improve the early detection and care of babies with serious heart conditions. Tiny Tickers go into the community and train sonographers (people in the hospital that scan pregnant mums) to detect heart defects at Mum’s 20 week scan. Early detection is critical. Our little son Archie, who is now 3, had heart surgery at a young age, so this charity is very close to us, and does incredible work. See tinytickers.org
I would give everyone the opportunity to change jobs for a day, so they could work in the field they’ve always desired to be in.
