My strategy philosophy
The best strategist is one who isn’t precious about where an insight or strategy line comes from. You care that it's the truth and that it's the right truth for the right time, place, person, or brand. Like a journalist, you utilize skills from multiple areas of expertise, not all of them originally your own. Empathy and respect for the people you’re talking to is fundamental. You’re part muse, part partner and move as creatively and flexibly as the rest of your team.
