“The fastest way to grow your firm is by effective delegation.”

“If you can’t get the work done in a timely manner, you just can’t grow.”

“Be aware of where the world is headed and test the waters. Embrace the change.”

“It’s just attitude particularly from the leaders. Partners need to have forward thinking to allow staff to try things out. Look at the cost benefit of this approach.”

Advice to younger self: “Get rid of the ego. Read about really successful people. Get a mentor.”

On offshoring:

Don’t think it’s a quick fix.
