It was great having Paul here today speaking to us because he underlined something vitally important – yes, our employees will learn technical skills while they work for us, but it is the broader skills which they need to succeed – resilience, tenacity and having real confidence in themselves. Partner, PwC

I thought Paul did an excellent job of making us all evaluate how we motivate ourselves and how important our own personal lives are in achieving success. It was great to have him here today. Senior Investment Director, Investec
