HOW TO GET AHEAD: MY GURU - Mark Connolly, commercial director at GMTV, sings the praises of ex-boss Alex McDevitt

’It was a sad day when our group sales manager Alex McDevitt left GMTV for Viasat Broadcasting. I would undoubtedly nominate her as one of the people who helped develop my career.

’Even though she was in a top management position, Alex remained human

and could visualise things outside of the box. She was brilliant at

delegating and advising people. If there was ever a problem, she would

help you out.



’Generosity of spirit was important to her working relationships. She

wouldn’t think twice about sharing her network and introducing me to

people who have since become instrumental in my career.’
