Her personal mantra has always been "clients and our team first … as without a team that can truly drive high quality delivery, sustained improvement and innovations with our clients then we can never be number one. No one person can win a deal, deliver consistent and sustained quality, create innovation and ultimately delight our customers - it requires a team."
