Lit­tle PINK book

CityPress - - Business -

BUSINESS TIP: De­velop your own per­sonal brand be­cause a ti­tle is only ‘lent’ to you for the pe­riod of time you work at a company.

MEN­TOR: My late mother is my icon. By the time you’re work­ing in a business, you are al­ready shaped – rather like a young sapling be­ing pruned – to grow into a mighty oak tree.

BUSINESS BOOK: David and Go­liath by Mal­colm Glad­well. It helped me to un­der­stand my weak­nesses and strengths. My strength is be­ing an ex­tro­vert, but I need to lis­ten more in­tently to oth­ers.

IN­SPI­RA­TION: I am in­spired by my am­bi­tion to en­sure that my daugh­ter does not have to look after me in my old age.

WOW! MO­MENT: Hear­ing that our tal­ent man­age­ment pro­gramme at Shan­duka was in the top three in an in­ter­na­tional con­sult­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

LIFE LES­SON: Make friends on your way up the cor­po­rate lad­der. You don’t know whose shoul­ders you will need to lean on on the way down.
