The former Senator and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department inspired over 80 INTI students and staff members by sharing his life’s journey and career path from CFO to CEO and further to his appointment in the Government. During his talk, he shared an advice “You often hear the old adage, work smart not hard. To me, both are equally important. Hard work is first step for smart work. Hard work gives experiences and that enable us to think smart to solve problem in easier way.”

He has also come to the conclusion that there are three key attributes a great leader must have which are integrity, competency and humility. He said: “I strongly believe that action speaks more powerful than word. Great leaders lead by example, demonstrating their values through their actions.”
