Angela Ahrendts

What is the best and worst decision you've ever made?
Best: Joining Burberry as CEO to revitalize this great brand. Worst: Leaving a job prior to having another.

What was your dream job as a kid and why?
President of Donna Karan, because it was a great company and brand for women.

What do you think is the most significant barrier to female leadership?
Being taken seriously and handling three jobs simultaneously — CEO, Wife and Mother.

What woman inspires you and why?
My Mother, as I trust her implicitly and know she will always be open and honest, and always has my best interests at heart.

What will be the biggest challenge for the generation of women behind you?
The ability to multi-task as life and careers demand more.
