- On the importance of being organised and patient: One of the things that helps to deliver great results is organisation. Being organised helps you to anticipate what is coming, and prepare sufficiently. For instance, when preparing a group communication, you have time to speak to all of the relevant people involved and maybe set up a customer roundtable to understand client views. This is especially important when dealing with different countries, as you need to be mindful of and take into account the time differences. Capucine’s advice to herself when she was first starting out is to be more patient. Often the retail world is very fast and it draws you in. You constantly think about your next role, and the role after that. But sometimes it is great to enjoy the role that you have, take your time to understand what is going on, learn the market, learn how customers react.
