Living our Values

‘My experience of living our values comes via my financial background. Having spent a lot of time in an industry with a proclivity to make things complicated, I have learnt to hone into the heart of an issue; whilst always understanding and developing the skills of the collective rather than the individual. Partnerships are fundamental to what we do and this ability to be inquisitive, aware of, and awake to our partner’s needs is key, meaning I identify strongly with Zetland’s belief in integrity and impact.’
