What is your favourite quote?
I have two favourites. Simon Sinek said, “Always start with the why”, and to me that means using my ‘why’ to inspire the Hanover family to be the best they can be. My other favourite is from Napoleon Hill: “Whatever the mind conceives and believes, it achieves.”
What is your leadership style?
My leadership style is about empowerment. Empowering others to achieve remarkable results for themselves, for Hanover as a business and for our clients.
