A whirlwind romance for Worthington

Conran Design Group managing director David Worthington leads an intense, but rewarding life. While most people just have the big three high street problems to contend with in their lives – death, divorce and moving house – David has a fourth. Failing in a pitch. Worthington describes the process as like falling in love, having a short intense relationship (the sort whereby you do it everywhere bar the bed) and then being suddenly dropped for no particular reason. But all is not lost. Think of the upside. Winning a pitch is like being happily married at the same time as having a whirlwind affair on the side. Are there any jobs going at CDG?
