Biggest professional achievement
Developing strong teams who are motivated to do their best every day, such that we never lost a client to a competitor.
Best piece of leadership advice you ever received
There are two that have stuck with me. Firstly, never face a challenging situation alone. If you have made a decision in good faith you will always have support. And secondly, block your calendar for all important school events for your children. There are almost no client situations that are more important than being present for your children.
Something unusual about yourself that most people at work don’t know
Due to being an expat teenager, I went to five different secondary schools, in UK, US, Thailand, UK again, and Australia.
