The one thing, practice or thought that can always boost your motivation is…
Going for a walk helps refresh my mind and body- I feel there is something soothing about just being outside. By engaging with nature, we can sometimes find the resolution that is needed. It has an absolute purity, and exists without judgement.
The best thing any one ever told you is…
‘Discovering new lands requires losing sight of the shore’ – Andre Gide
One thing that is special about your career and/ or business is…
I have always been inquisitive and curious about the world. Engineering is special because you have the freedom to create whatever you want from it. There are countless examples of individuals that qualified in this field who have made a real, lasting and positive impact to our planet – and those who continue to do so. Realising better ways to solve for new frontiers and bringing people together, makes a tangible difference which translates to all sectors.
