Get to know your Project Manager – Thomas Wright

 

What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Never go for spicy food on the first date… You never know what might happen!

 

Which book/film/event changed your life?

Danny, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl. Not only is this a truly heart-warming tale of the relationship between father and son, but it also taught me that you don’t always have to follow the rules to get the best outcome – creativity and innovation can be another path to great results!

 

Give one characteristic that you feel every leader should have?

The ability to let go and empower others – a leader does not and should not be involved in every aspect!

 

What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?

Deciding, around three weeks before the deadline, that I did in fact want to go to university… Not only did I go on to obtain my Master’s, but also had a bloody great time doing so!

 

What is the most meaningful part of your job?

Easy peasy – seeing/hearing the long lasting and meaningful impact we have on individuals and organisations!
