Careers: Brand manager of the week - Tanya Brookfield, sponsorship and marketing manager, AT Racing

What is your favourite slogan? The Ronseal slogan, because it does exactly what it says on the tin. What's your favourite cliche? 'It's a funny ol' game' - obviously, it has to be said in a Jimmy Greaves voice.

Have you got a bad temper? Despite being a redhead, I haven't.

Who or what do you hate most? Apathy. And Post-It notes.

What has been your best/worst freebie? The best was from Greek brandy label Metaxa. It flew a group of us to Athens on a Lear jet, followed by a week spent cruising around the Greek islands on a yacht. The worst was a miniature bottle of champagne, which turned out to be full of shampoo.

What's your favourite song? Lazy by David Byrne.

What's your dream holiday destination? Cuba - I love the heat, passion and history.

What's your greatest luxury in life? My bed. I spent a fortune on it after getting divorced and it's worth every penny.

What do you dream about? Having a luxurious garden with a sunken pool to come home to after a hard day's slog.

What's your greatest ambition? To hang-glide in the Andes and to be happy and fulfilled in everything I do, plus a touch of world peace thrown in for good measure.

What will you not eat? Brussels sprouts.

Who would be your favourite party guests? Johnny Vegas, Brian Blessed, Harry Connick Jr, the Stereophonics, Freddie Starr, Dawn French, Davina McCall and Dame Judi Dench.
