How Donal is building a better working world
“I am a firm believer that the there is a strong relationship between the worlds of Business and Sport. Rugby has formed a large part of my life and afforded numerous opportunities to me both on and off the pitch. In all aspects of life, I look to learn from the core virtues of discipline, teamwork, creativity and passion which are often seen in a sporting capacity.
From a professional perspective, I aim to cultivate a continuous learning environment in which individuals are encouraged to improve skills, develop their knowledge and express themselves in a manner which aligns itself to the core values of the business. When looking to build a better working world in the Real Estate and Finance Sector, I like to encourage natural talent, innovation, creativity, resourcefulness, passion and ambition.”
