My convictions

Over the course of my professional experience, I have too often seen how accomplishment, meaning and collaboration were not seen as so critical and important in the workplace. I was also shocked at how often the value of employees is overlooked. I hate to see such a waste – whether it is time, skills or money. I am convinced that valuing the experience, talent, passion and potential of each person is the key to lasting success. That’s why I founded PointNorth International.
