For Donald, the best thing about his role is learning new things each day about how Jacobs can deliver outcomes that have a meaningful and transformational impact for our people, clients and stakeholders.
The best advice I received was “if you believe something is the right thing to do, get on and do it relentlessly” - that inspires me to build inclusive and diverse teams that deliver with integrity and who know they can challenge me and each other.
