HOW TO GET AHEAD: My Guru - Rapture TV’s sales director Darren Khan nominates Jill Kerslake and Tom Toumazis

’I am nominating both a male and female guru. My female guru is undoubtedly Jill Kerslake at TSMS. Although she was a tough cookie, she was a great person to talk to about a problem. She had this ability to make people feel good about themselves. Of course, being wined and dined at Langan’s when I turned 21 increased my admiration tenfold.

’I would choose Tom Toumazis as my male guru. Another ex-TSMS sales

person, he knows his numbers better than anyone else and holds great

sway with the agencies - they trust his judgment. He’s also the most

brilliant negotiator I have ever come across. He ran his sales operation

like a military campaign.’
