HOW TO GET AHEAD: MY GURU - Naren Patel, managing director of Primesight, is a fan of former Mills & Allen chairman Charles Daniels - but admits he might be his only admirer

’Charles Daniels is a legend in outdoor. He ran Mills & Allen for years and then ran Primesight until it was bought by Scottish Media Group. Probably around a quarter of all people in outdoor have worked for him at some time or another.

’He wasn’t always popular - he had to put Primesight’s Premier Bus

company into administration - but he never got personal. He might have

had a go at you but at least you knew where you stood.



’He was completely driven and pulled off deals that no-one else could.’
