Welcome to the Summer issue of Velocity. This month, we meet entrepreneur Theo Paphitis who talks about his business life and how he built his fortune from nothing. We also talk to Alfred Cointreau, the sixth-generation son and Heritage Manager of the famous orange liqueur house. Three innovative self-starters in the word of wine reveal the secrets of their success, and iconic shoe designer Christian Louboutin has his say on believing in yourself and staying independent. We explore London’s Hampstead, meet a musician who shares her favourite places in Dublin and play a round of golf in Florence.
