Rarely a dull moment for Jim - at work or home

A little over 23 years ago I left Shell UK to join Murco Petroleum as a business development manager in the South East. Responsible for an area of Murco dealer sites across Kent, Surrey, Sussex and beyond, my first encounter with one larger-than-life customer involved being greeted like a family friend initially, only to be told to clear off rather colourfully all within the space of 20 minutes. Thankfully, this turn of events was due entirely to a 'misunderstanding' with my then boss and introductions to the remainder of my new customers didn't provoke any similar outbursts! However, for me, it was an early lesson learned as to the importance of clear and effective communication and getting relationships right.
