Partner, Goodmans LLP
Sector: Private Sector
Magic Moment: Successfully shepherding a Diversity and Inclusion policy through a Board that I was a member of. Although there was orginally resistence, through patient and open communication, the Board came together and unanmously endorsed it.
Key Influence: Allan Leibel
Key lessons: I learned that an accepted approach is not always an acceptable approach and to be wary of ‘conventional wisdom’.
We raise them and then they raise us.
Next Big Challenge As An Industry: We need to find a way to keep families in urban areas. Schools, parks, religious buidlngs, grocery stores and other shops all improve when people are invested in their success and not just passing through.
On Championing Others… I always, always praise good work; I praise it to the person who did it and praise it to others who need good work done.
Secret Talent: I can make elaborate hats and wigs out of paper. It doesn’t have much application.
One word that captures you: Undaunted.
