what drives me
For more than two decades, I have been fortunate to work from both within operations and consulting. I have also been fortunate to have worked along the entire value chain eg. manufacturing, purchasing, distribution to retail.
Operations provided me with key insights and depth of activities within the industry and value chain. Consulting gave me a macro overview of the structures and diagnostic capabilities to identify imminent changes, trends and disruption that could occur. Together, these experiences have enabled me to hone in as a consultant to incisively diagnose challenges and opportunities within an organisation, and relate it in the context of an individual industry.
Consulting is a passion. It is the build up from taking target at the ‘right’ issue and working through with leaders, the compelling rationale that ‘that’ is the future and way ahead, that energises me. Hitting that breakthrough moment with leaders, and knowing that we have a plausible and sustainable projected future in hand, is core to my motivation. Helping leaders through this entire process of enquiry, tempered with industry knowledge and arriving at an educated decision, is what drives me.
