It might interest you to know that 'Vicky' as she is fondly called, serves as my mentor in the media industry under the Cherie Blaire Foundation for Women. Being under her tutelage has been a priviledge, it is not easy to have a person genuinely interested in your professional and personal development. In the course of my work and relationship with her, I have learnt the values of proper time management, business planning/strategies and having the right attitude.
Despite her busy schedule, Vicky obliged Omote Ro Dhe for a chat and shared her wealth of experience/wisdom nuggets from her career path, passion for women, fashion taste, personal life and more.
