Business Leader Interviews

At Heathrow Express we like to celebrate doing things that bit smarter. If there was one business leader you wanted to sit down with and get some advice from who would you choose?

How about an interview with Sir Richard Branson? Or Sir James Dyson? What about some of the entrepreneurs who have appeared on BBC's Dragons' Den like Peter Jones or Deborah Meaden? We've put together this series of interviews with a host of brilliant business innovators to give you the ultimate in business inspiration and entrepreneur ideas.

We also learnt some interesting facts along the way – Richard Branson asks his mum for advice, Peter Jones used to sleep on the floor of a warehouse, Theo Paphitis' dyslexia is part of the reason he's so successful and Sir Martin Sorrell used to read the FT on his way to school.
