Quotes:

“On the value of having an offshore team: “Helping us create value for our clients, to increase services rather than just reduced costs.”

“It’s all about creating value for our clients.”

On misconceptions about offshoring: “It’s taking away Australian jobs. That surprises me. Because since we’ve started offshoring 3 years ago, our firm has grown both offshore and onshore.”

“Get over there. Get to know your team members. Get to know their culture. Understand what motivates and drives them. Bring them to you.”

“I talk every day to my team members via Skype and it’s very similar with what I do here with my team. Making them feel part of the team is really important in managing that relationship.”
