A short exchange with a complete stranger twenty years ago changed everything for me in my career.
Watch me explain in this, possibly my most candid, video exactly what happened and see if you think differently about your own career afterwards.
This video is one in a series of interviews on the topic of 'Conversations that changed everything' by John-Paul Flintoff, features writer for the Sunday Times and former associate editor of the Financial Times. John-Paul is also the author of the rather wonderful little book, How to change the world.
