What do you enjoy about being part of a global company?

The fantastic opportunity to work and interact with people of different countries and different cultures. Being part of a firm with a huge global footprint, every conversation with a colleague from a different country is an opportunity to learn more about a different geography, culture, and ultimately more about a person on the other side of the world. Not many firms offer this – and it’s not lost on me how this makes for a dynamic and interesting work environment.

How do you connect with co-workers in different offices?

By travelling to them, both for work and leisure! My role allows me to travel for work on occasions, but as you build strong relationships through day to day interactions, friendships develop, and sometimes nothing beats engaging your colleagues outside of work to get to know them better. I had the pleasure of travelling to attend the wedding of a colleague in Hong Kong. The wedding was a graceful ceremony by Repulse Bay, and it was one of the most beautiful and memorable weddings I have attended in my life.
