Back in summer 2010, i had the honour of interning at Hong Kong Tatler magazine. My first major reporting assignment was interviewing Mr. Phillippe D’Ornano, President of the international skincare company Sisley. The interview was held at The Upper House, one of Hong Kong’s newer luxury hotels, located on top of the high end mall Pacific Place, Admiralty. I was very nervous, and prior to the interview, i informed Mr. D’Ornano that this was my first big assignment as an intern, and apologized if i seemed a bit flustered. In response, he chuckled and said “Oh don’t worry about it. In fact, i was going to ask you to take it easy on me!” His down to earth demeanour and sense of humour really helped put me at ease, and we had a relaxing, enjoyable interview thereafter.
