“My path to the hospice industry was not an obvious one – previously, I was a litigator in London. The importance of corporate social responsibility, the belief that we should all be socially accountable, was drilled into me from day one and it has always stayed with me. The projects I became involved in gave me a diversity of experience and a very firm view that the most important factor in any aspect of life is people.”View in Edition »
