Five-minutes-interview: If I don’t have anything useful to say, I keep quiet

I’m good at........client service.

I’m very bad at..............saying no to people and turning down requests.

The last book I enjoyed reading is..............What it Takes: Seven Secrets of Success from the World’s Greatest Professional Firms by Charles Ellis.

A common misconception of me is..........I am angry just because I’m quiet and meditative. If I don’t have something useful to say, I keep quiet.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is............family and close friends. They always offer support when I am in need.

One of my worst childhood fears was.........being beaten up for wrongdoing.

My ideal night out is.............watching a performance with friends.

In moments of weakness, I.............sit back, take a deep breath and meditate.

I wish people would take more notice of.........talent. Natural talent is easy to spot. We should see it when someone walks up and accomplishes something with ease, something that we ourselves struggle with.

The best age to be is............18.

The best part of my job is..........dealing with client enquiries and receiving them at the office.

In another life I’d have been..........an angel.

Living leader I most admire.........US President Barack Obama.

My greatest achievement is...............leading a charity event to support former street children and setting up youth leadership programmes.

My idea of perfect happiness is..............not comparing what I have with what other people have.

My greatest regret is.........none.

My favourite author is.........King David.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be.........Lord, let me dwell in your kingdom.
