How Sean is building a better working world
“My passion is supporting companies in realizing their ambitions and striving to realize my personal purpose statement of connecting good people to do great things. Through my work, I hope to help organizations both respond to and lead in the world today.
This is one of the most exciting times to be a Supply Chain professional, where the disruption in the market is only surpassed by the technological innovation that is changing the world. I believe the following quote from Darwin rings true now more than ever for us personally and for EY clients:
'It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.'
— Charles Darwin”
