James Parkhouse, Chief Executive Officer of Capita Travel and Events

"My main focus is to bring together the different teams within the business including; the meetings and events service delivery, account management, supplier management, product management, marketing and sales development and commercial. This is in order to meet customer, supplier and business goals.

"I see my role as all about alignment. My focus is to align the strategy, structure, systems, skills and culture towards a shared vision. Another way of looking at it would be that my role is like the conductor of the orchestra and to make sure that the team is made up of great musicians and that we are playing in tune!"
