Business travelers want to use their time in the car to get something done, to work efficiently, to make phone calls, write mails or prepare a presentation. They do not want to carry on a long conversation with me. However, if there are two or three people, then my car will turn into a traveling conference room. In any case, my job is to stay quiet and, of course, to be discreet. Discretion is of utmost importance in view of the confidential and sensitive topics discussed. Dr Giuseppe Vita, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Axel Springer SE concluded his letter of recommendation with these words:
“Finally, it deserves mention that I felt very well looked-after bearing in mind your safe and highly professional driving style as well as your unobtrusive presence.”
Having lived in the United States for two years, I speak English fluently.
