Interesting moments from the interview:

  • Success in transactions

    "One of the key lessons learnt out of all the research is that 47% of the business leaders point to poor planning, and execution around the people in organisational issues as the biggest barrier to success in transactions."
  • Organisations that attract, retain, and gauge.

    "The world is going through a change as far as how organisations attract, retain, gauge, and motivate talent."
  • Culture is how work gets done

    "From a tangible, usable standpoint, culture is how work gets done in that organisation, and how that organisation behaves in the execution of their work."
