B. She leaves work around seven, but quite often goes to an evening meeting. To relax she likes seeing her friends and family, and enjoys going away at the weekend and getting out of the city. She goes to bed between 11 and midnight.
C. Jodie Lawson, Young Businessperson of the Year, is managing director of roundpeg.com, an internet-based recruitment agency.
