Principles

TEAM PLAYER

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”
African proverb

And it is important to know when to change gears.

MOTIVATION

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”
Maya Angelou 

By understanding the people around you and motivating them accordingly, it is possible to multiply their own ability to contribute.

LEADERSHIP

“Your title makes you a manager, your people make you a leader”.

Success is more easily achieved when individuals are empowered and motivated rather than compelled.

COMMUNICATION

“Communication is not what you are saying, it is what you are hearing”

By presenting to thousands of customers every year, we consistently generated authentic, direct feedback and insight into what our customers were thinking and feeling.

FEEDBACK

“Seek first to understand, then to be understood”.

One of the most important means of self-improvement is to be genuinely open to transparent feedback. For example, none of my key presentations are delivered without a serious level of rehearsal and feedback from a critical audience.

CONSTRUCTIVE DISRUPTION

"Banking is essential to a modern economy, banks are not"
Ed Furash

There is always opportunity to effect change in a way that is constructive and positive for the economy, business, society and oneself. Technology in particular has been an increasingly important lever and enabler of change.

SIMPLIFICATION

“Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations we can perform without thinking about them”
Alfred North Whitehead

Despite its role supporting some very basic human needs, the technology industry is complex and riddled with jargon.
Simplifying this complexity is critical to ensuring that society understands and cares about the opportunities and potential dangers afforded by technology and is driven to do something about them both.
