Our People

Jane Speller

United Kingdom

“A really important moment for me happened when I was Director of a national training and conferences organisation many years ago… When  I realised that instead of chasing the money, my business was at its most successful when we were doing work that we loved, in ways that felt stretching, challenging and personally rewarding. Get that right (and with a few good internal processes), and the money looks after itself… I still believe that our constant focus on increasing shareholder value, to the exclusion of other ‘softer’ things, is destroying industries, communities and the nature of our planet. My work is all about re-balancing, and remembering what is really important in life.”
