What problems do you consistently solve for your clients?
When I’m working with Clients, I typically see three types of problems:
How can we turn a broad, ambitious strategy into concrete, measurable actions that will get us where we need to go?
How can we use our data effectively to make predictions and improve our business?
How can we best ensure we meet all our governance, risk and compliance responsibilities?
Through my work I am able to take these big complex challenges and apply an analytical lens to develop customised solutions that are easily implemented and sustainable.
What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Badly attempting to learn guitar.
What would your personal motto be?
Always be as upfront, clear and concise as possible.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is be humbler about what you know, more confident about what’s possible, and less afraid of things that don’t matter.
