“My leadership style varies depending on the task and the people. You have to look at the particular case and see what applies. I am passionate about inspiring people and looking for opportunities to give value to team and the organisation. 

“I’ve benefited from mentors and feel excited when I see my team evolve. You need to notice the strengths of the team, bringing out the talents that exist with them.”

She said that the brand is a key differentiating factor that highlights the need to be adaptable, as people and systems evolve. “The world is volatile, complex and ambiguous,” she added.
