When I became Chairman, I shared with you my assessment of the strengths of the business.A focused strategy of organic growth-rolling out our brands into country after country, city after city, discipline after discipline An expanding presence in the worlds growth markets Powerful brands recognised around the globe One of the strongest “make it happen” cultures I have come across in forty years A work hard/play hard/go anywhere management team; and A small and effective Board. Our Board has reviewed and embraced the strategy of worldwide organic growth in multiple disciplines and geographies. We have continued to open offices in growth markets. We have redesigned the executive leadership team to create one global company,organisation and culture. In doing so,We have further strengthened our Board. We remain free of the constraints that hold back so many businesses in this difficult environment.
