eg team

We foster a strong & distinct culture, nurturing driven individuals

We believe that trust leads to openness – just as openness generates trust. We’re freed to put aside position and personal agendas and back each other’s ability when making big decisions. It’s about expecting the best of each other, confident that we’re stronger together.

One of the things we value most – alignment – doesn’t always come easily; and robust debate is often the best path to consensus. So we’ve made it part of our process with each of us willing to speak up, to ask and be asked the tough questions.
