“Doing the right thing in the right way. That’s what it’s about. Only if you’re honest yourself, can you help others to behave honestly. Trust is the key word here. And it’s not simply a matter of getting the job done. It’s a combination of relationships, quality, the best services, and shared values. Values that society expects from us and our clients. Only in this way can you become a trusted business advisor.”
How Brenton is building a better working world
“I work on complex, worldwide business issues. And they continue to challenge me. At the end of the day, if I’ve got a satisfied client, then I’m happy too. But my work goes beyond that. I have a strong sense of fairness, and try to contribute every day to making a fair world. Because if we and our clients don’t do it, who will?”
