President of Commercial Drive Business Society Importer, Beer, Wine, Spirits – Managing Partner, Stile Brands
I am positive and like to look at things ‘glass half full’ rather than ‘glass half empty’. I enjoy being around energetic and lively people. My vitality has allowed me to be dynamic and opportunistic but also reflective. This reflection has made me more observant and receptive to change. With this in mind, I have been able to adapt quickly and be responsive to our unique market. This is the challenge and also the fun – always trying to be current and relevant.
Executive Director of Commercial Drive Business Society
Thinking ahead, staying ahead of trends is huge! The key is planning in advance – today’s reward is the result of the prior months work. Staying positive and optimistic allows you to see opportunities as they present themselves. Being quick to respond to asks and keeping timelines lets your clients and vendors know you care about the project and their role in the larger framework. Find your team’s strengths and build on their natural abilities, this will build strong leaders amongst your group.

My superpower has to be problem-solving. I enjoy figuring out solutions in creative ways, and I thrive on solving small and large issues. Life is always throwing big curve balls at us, and I believe it’s how you quickly learn and adapt that creates balance and opportunity. Like the creation of a well-balanced cocktail, I enjoy identifying what “flavour” is missing, exploring options and throwing in two dashes of bitters. Just like that, it’s ready to serve!
