My message

  • The ability to inspire, motivate and emotionally connect with people is a key skill for any leader; even more so in a global setting. It requires patience, respect, flexibility and a high level of self-awareness. Leaders are important role models and as the Nobel Prize Peace winner Albert Schweitzer said: “Example is not the main thing influencing people….it’s the only thing”.
