“Many years ago, I read the book ‘Building a House of Diversity’ and the enduring fable of the Elephant and the Giraffe has been inspiring me ever since! I simply had the best start to my career, working with so many different nationalities and cultures in the European head office for Bacardi-Martini in Paris. We all do our best work when we can be ourselves and true to our values. As the French put it and so well, Vive La Difference!”.
