A strong advocate of an “active leadership” style, utilising members in decision making whenever possible. He believes that teams have the ability to overcome overwhelming odds, because if you invest in team members they deliver beyond expectation.

The four building blocks for a dynamic team are: Trust, Empathy being Accomplished and an agreed Mission.
