  • [What is leadership?]

  • Leadership, to me, is the ability to bring people together to achieve change.

  • [What is the most surprising thing you have learnt about leadership?

  • The most surprising thing I've learnt about leadership is that it takes time.

  • It isn't a single act, it isn't making a statement, but it's about patiently working through the issues and bringing people with you.

  • [What is your top tip for leaders of the future?]

  • Really listen to people and demonstrate that you can hear the issues they're talking about and the... the sense of urgency or concern they have in their voices.

  • I've learnt over the years that the only good leaders are those that understand the colleagues around them,

  • and are able to channel and influence the passions and ideas and priorities that different people have, and the only way you can do that is by listening.

  • [What is the biggest challenge for any leader?]

  • I think the biggest challenge for any leader is staying true to your purpose.

  • Different challenges, different problems, different voices speaking to you and listening to you, and remembering why you got into it.

  • Staying focused on your values, but also staying in touch with those people around you.

  • Sometimes, on a busy day, that can feel like a luxury.

  • I think it's a basic part of leadership.
