One thing that is the biggest driving factor of your success


Common Sense - it is THE most powerful tool that all of us have, doesnt cost anything and can fix almost everything that can go wrong.


One thing that inspires you every day


Love what I do and always try to do it well.


One thing that you must tell everyone


Be responsible for your own acts and be accountable to everyone you work, live, play and learn with.


One thing that the future leaders must know


The real world is not a science fiction, so please do not over-rely on AI and machines and continue to nurture and upskill your people. Successful businesses in the future will have highly skilled and competent people who will use intelligent machines effectively to deliver the exceptional outcomes.
