What are you most looking forward to in your role as Managing Director of Active Directions?

The people.

Active Directions has a fantastic culture – great clients and a fantastic team. Our clients are diverse, each with unique positions, contexts, and opportunities. They are keen to work with our committed, passionate, and expert consultants to find unique solutions for businesses and operations.

As Managing Director, I am looking forward to strengthening the relationships between our clients and our team to help each develop and grow as individuals and collaborative groups and entities.

What are you happiest doing when you’re not working?

Family and friends, sport and travel, are my biggest passions – if I can combine all 3, perfect.

We enjoy travelling to football, cricket and rugby world cups, Lions Tours, Olympics, tennis majors and arts and cultural festivals.

What would your motto be?

My School motto still seems to have relevance:

Dum tempus habemus, operemur bonum – Whilst we have time, let us do good.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:

Work well and live well.
