Recognised for your knowledge of the core portfolio disciplines, you will also be acknowledged for your leadership style which is empowering and supportive. An effective communicator and listener, you will have a track record of achievement that will give you credibility. Active stakeholder engagement will ensure you build strong relationships across the organisation.
