Business Line

:

Two things that my education/training taught me:

To think critically and outside the box.

The importance and power of clear, cogent writing.

Two things I learnt from my work/real life:

The most important skills (but too often the least emphasised) are interpersonal skills, the ability to work and relate to others in a positive way.

Even during crises you must treat co-workers and colleagues with kindness and respect.

What I look for the most in a new recruit:

I always look for two qualities: intelligence, and the interpersonal skills that are essential to working as part of a team.

A book that I read recently:
