Living our values

“My father has been my inspiration: leaving school at 14, working 3 jobs, he gradually improved his lot with grit, curiosity and the quiet confidence necessary to stand apart. His story is emblematic of ‘learn, adapt and grow’ as well as having ‘impact through insight and tenacity’. Forced to choose, I would go with the latter; it’s a large part of why I get to do what I do today.”
