How Alisdair is building a better working world
“Through my various leadership roles and in all my dealings with both clients and EY colleagues, I constantly strive to bring insights about future risks, the confidence to actively manage those risks and the encouragement to move forward and embrace the possibilities of what might lie ahead. The greatest risk is often to stand still whilst everything around you changes. For me, better lies in the future and not in the past.”
