"The greatest lesson travel has given me is that there is no one absolute right way to do something - people the world over come up with different solutions to universal problems.
A forerunner in business globalisation, the hospitality sector is faced with cross-market, cross-cultural challenges on a daily basis. The satisfaction I take from our work at AETHOS Consulting Group not only comes from helping our clients prepare and execute their human capital strategy across markets, old and new, but also from the personal impact - whether it be recruiting someone from Bangkok into a role in Madrid; designing an executive incentive plan in Saudi Arabia; or conducting a psychometric assessment in Cape Town."
