Glasgow-born Paul McDade, the 58-year-old chief executive of Africa-focused Afentra, is clear what makes for a successful business – people of a like mind with complimentary skills.

“Surround yourself with a great team of people that you get along with, have fun doing what you do and, if you’re ambitious and have a clear view of where you want to get to, you’ll get there as long as you persevere.”

He also highlights the importance of “relationships, managing your reputation and leaving things in a good place – you never know when you might have to pick things up again.”
