You obviously get to see the results of the development that models and talent receive often. How important is development?
Development is very important, but the key is getting knowledgeable professionals in your corner who are experienced and know how to achieve results. The best companies know how to reach their subjects and that's when the real growth can occur.
What would you say to the people who say that talent should not get involved with development centers?
I would say that they're not fostering the growth that the talent need to develop and compete in this industry. Everyone requires development, in every sport and every career. Even in Yoga, there is a concentration on continuing to evolve. It just is not very realistic to say that talent should come to an event unprepared.
