Our CEO’s Guilty Pleasure?
At the launch of Copybook’s new site on Decembers 1st, Andy Fields – the Managing Director and CEO made a speech stating that, “Young people are the business leaders of our future”.
Mr Fields thinks that it is important for us all to embrace the thoughts and aspirations of the younger generation today, as in just a few years time they will be the managing directors, presidents and CEOs of companies driving our economies of the future.
When asked to expand on his comment, he laid reference to the Vamps – a young band of four lads who he took his daughter to see on their tour, ‘Meet the Vamps’ last year.
“We couldn’t have meet a more pleasant and caring bunch of lads. The queues outside were crazy as thousands of screaming fans lined the streets to get into the Bournemouth arena. I thought that we would be lucky if we would be even able to see the boys on stage as our seat was relatively near the back.”
He then went on to say, “Not only did we meet the lads later on, but they seemed to have time for everyone and took a real interest in each of their adoring fans. Needless to say, my daughter was ecstatic”.
Later Andy had the pleasure of meeting their drummer, Tristan Evans, at his daughter’s school in Devon.
“He was delightful to speak with and he appeared to have all the time in the world for the children who were buzzing around. If only business leaders could embrace this kind of attitude when dealing with customers and staff, the world would be a much better and happier place.”
The Vamps formed in 2012 and have had chart success all over the world with hits like ‘Can We Dance’, ‘Wild Heart’, ‘Last Night’ and ‘Cecilia’ Their latest single ”Wake up’, was released on 2 October 2015. The band members are Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.
