Turning Point : Claire Myerscough, business intelligence director, News International

My turning point was ... taking the plunge from Zenith to News International five years ago.

It was less the done thing then and rather risky after 20 years at a top agency. But at a lunch with Paul Hayes, then Times Newspapers general manager, he asked me who'd be my pick to pull together all NI's resources to create a new sales proposition.

As it turns out, Paul's choice was me. I spent two weeks mulling over the proposition and have never looked back. The move transformed my career and passion for the industry.

Being part of a successful global media organisation means being at the cutting edge. There's a real opportunity to learn, be creative and make an impact. Agency experience brings a different perspective to the business and having an inspiring boss transforms your working life.
