What do you enjoy most about working with small and medium sized businesses?

I enjoy the speed and the agility of SMEs. SMEs are typically run by owners who have a strong desire to improve, and I enjoy making a difference. Their speed of decision making and implementing the change is fast, as there are minimum layers of hierarchy.

 

What is the biggest lesson you have learned from starting your own business?

Starting own business helps me to deliver more. It keeps me on my toes to perform at my best, as it is my ‘skin in the game’ and there is less certainty compared to being an employee.

 

What are people most surprised to find about you, when they meet you in person for the first time?

People are most surprised by my unique experience of having worked ‘hands on’ in various functions, before I started managing and then consulting to businesses. Successful change cannot be made in isolation and having a detailed understanding of end-to-end business processes helps ensure the success of the change.
