What does it take to run a global company?

Just KISS!

The acronym Keep It Simple, Stupid wins every time, makes such perfect sense, is so easy to understand yet all too often gets missed. Running a global entity requires simplicity of vision and mission and a compelling purpose.  Add a serious dose of clarity, honesty, integrity, consistency and relentless commitment to delivery and you have just some of the ingredients required.

Oh, and no little talent, a razor sharp intellect, the ability to inspire people to produce great results, huge energy and stamina, a body clock to astound the most learned Doctor and an incredible work ethic.

Up for it?
