Launching the first UK branch of American Eagle at Westfield London, Executive Vice President Simon Nankervis said, “The brand’s changed since 2011 and we’ve moved from being a US retailer to a global retailer.”

Nankervis said, “Our ranges will be differentiated because the guy in London wears his jeans tighter and the girls [follow] trends a lot quicker because of the proximity to Europe. It will be closer to what we do in New York than Middle America.”

A Summer of Travel: Business and Pleasure


I was recently asked whether my upcoming trip to Miami was business or pleasure. “Isn’t that the same thing?” I asked.

My role as Transformational Coach and Professional Speaker sees me working with clients around the globe. This Summer I was privileged to coach in South-Africa, France, Prague and London.
