expansion of offices into Greater China and Singapore, Andrew is
well-positioned to lead our organisation in the Asia Pacific region.”

provide these organisations with the relevant tools so they can build leaders
who are agile, nimble, and can be counted on to deliver meaningful results. We
are now at an exciting and game-changing period of change in the organisation,
