Building diversity in yourself

domains. My corporate experience has me pushing through change initiatives, defining and

I’ve lived and worked in Africa, the Middle East, Singapore, and the USA.
Connecting the Dots
Common career advice tells us to find a single focus and build a specialty that will give you credibility and value.
I challenge the notion that specialisation is the only or more desirable career strategy. My personal experience of navigating a career with a constant curiosity and eagerness to try to roles, has been challenging, but has helped me develop into a stronger executive, able to see what skills are needed in an organisation.
Throughout my career, I have been able to draw on a set of experiences at a point in time to tackle a problem in a completely different area, years later– often in ways I never could have imagined.
Connecting dots and maintaining curiosity is critically important in today’s world, both in teams and in ourselves.Regardless of the stage in your career, or maturity of your team, there is value in deliberately acquiring new skills and applying these in new areas.I speak to groups and to professionals at every stage of their careers to provide inspiration and guidance on how to maintain that level of curiosity and apply it across domains.
