“My success, I believe, has always been based on fully understanding the practice market and its merits and opportunities. I feel that by really knowing your clients and candidates and their specific requirements, you can best represent them and market them to each other ensuring a good match not only in experience but in personality and culture. Sometimes I may advise an alternative approach or offer a fresh solution to move things forward. I feel that it is only by having this trust and consultative relationship with client and candidate that successful outcomes can be achieved.”
