invited him - along with other sales executives - to go on safari in

South Africa.



’We were instructed to pack lightly with the emphasis on casual attire,’

he recalls. ’So I turned up at Heathrow in jeans and t-shirt, only to

find the others in their best blazers and chinos.’



His fashion faux pas forgotten, Taylor concentrated on enjoying the

safari.



’We saw giraffes, elephants and lions, had barbecues under the stars and

got drunk on the local firewater. It got pretty surreal when we were

asked to make presentations. Some people had even brought their laptops

to the middle of the African bush.’
