The importance of leadership
Turning independent research about an industry into a commercial product has been a tricky skill to learn, but a skill that I can say has enabled me to travel around the world and receive insight into different markets through experiences that I had not assumed were available when I started as a producer.
Along the way I have had some priceless lessons, the most important of which (and one that I am still trying to develop within myself), is the need for great leadership at every level.
As I move ahead in my career, it will be interesting to see what else I can learn about this essential quality – as I have already had the pleasure of working with those for whom this characteristic has become a part of them over time, and with others that own it as an indelible part of who they are.
As I prepare for a return trip to North America, there is much to be excited about, and I hope I can keep learning and being pleasantly surprised by what is just beyond the horizon.
