How can politics encourage creativity and innovation?
By means of simplification, support and tax advantages to set up small firms just like in Ireland; emphasising creativity and entrepreneurship in education; inviting and organising exchanges of students; targeted competition and idea awards; and motivating individuals to volunteer for participation in non-profit ideas, associations and projects.

What do you like best about Shanghai?
The absence of jealousy or resentment. We live in a bell of new ideas and projects. Everything is moving; every proactive person identifies and exploits opportunities to improve their circumstances. People have their international past in their genes; the cityscape is a blend of the modern and the classic, and in Chinese!

What should the world know about your work?
The entertainment industry has enabled me to live my interests – creativity in general, such as in marketing, design, art, architecture, inventing and sensing new trends, creating value. Today I have converted my private clubs from merely social into modern network centres. Places for meeting and experiencing, exchanging ideas, learning new ideas and finding potential partners, know-how and connections. Personally I focus on implementing sustainability; besides growing the clubs, we are working on a transcultural and spiritual retreat (health centre) in Bhutan, where we will create transforming experiences for successful business people/CEOs, married couples
and young people.
