Millions of people have brilliant careers but few become the most brilliant in their field. My brilliant career features interviews with 12 such famous and enormously successful people from diverse worlds of sport, stage, business and media.
Were they lucky? Were they well connected? Were they born brilliant?
These high achievers reveal what drove them to the peaks of their respective professions, and the requirements for a brilliant career and examined: the natural flair, the desire to do the job, the determination needed and the hard work that every successful career involves.
By candidly discussing their motivations and desires, these 12 self-starting individuals reveal the skills that characterize a brilliant career.
