I have worked closely alongside Lor twice, immediately recognising her as a breath of fresh air with a huge mind.
When we first found ourselves sitting together around a senior management table in 2015, Lor had joined the business as a consultant to improve efficiencies. I was immediately impressed by Lor's thorough and dedicated approach to identifying what would deliver the best results, most quickly.
Lor’s clarity of thought is immediately evident when you talk to her and it was clear to me from that first meeting that she was a compelling thinker with robust opinions, and sometimes controversial views, to contribute to the businesses they work with. Lor is fearless when challenging the status quo, but her professionalism and empathy in doing so, gives Lor the credibility to ask the difficult questions. Lor is certainly not afraid to pursue this when she sees a greater opportunity ahead and, of course, it helps that Lor has a great sense of humour too.
Lor applies broad business experience with the same enthusiasm she harnesses in her love of outdoor adventures, particularly, in my experience of Lor, when managing business change and scaling growth internationally. And it is the diversity of Lor’s own experience and the differences in our individual approaches that have created an interesting landscape for our many conversations. Where our passions are most clearly aligned, is our mutual belief that businesses are more successful, where the culture creates effective teamwork through truly engaging the people.
I have often wondered how she has managed to fit so much diversity into her work life, Lor has a head full of ideas and is always giving life to a variety of their concepts, with inspiring results. We have shared many thought-provoking hours, discussing the opportunities to help businesses grow.
