At lunch, Dany Lennon orders salmon. “I need the protein,” she says. “Did I tell you, darling, that I’m a boxer?”

Turns out she is, in a sense. Lennon, founder of the Creative Register – arguably the industry’s most influential talent management and recruiting company – had started taking boxing lessons several weeks earlier. Over a two-hour lunch at Neuehouse, the shared workspace in New York’s Flatiron district, where she has a desk, and a subsequent phone call, Lennon also calls herself an artist, an interior designer, a child psychologist, a humanist, a musician, an intellectual, a “Girl Friday,” a counselor, a therapist and a “a bit of a star.”
