Case Study: Dougal Hawes
I’m managing director for Smartbox Assistive Technology.
For me, being part of the Executive Foundation is about learning from some of the best people in business and sharing and solving each other’s problems.
When I arrived I was facing the challenging new role of being a director in a company experiencing massive growth, I was going from being part of a management team to actually leading one. The Executive Foundation has given me genuine learning opportunities that are really engaging and applicable and has helped me transition from being a “do-er” type of manager to a real leader and somebody who can set a direction for the company.
Mike is an amazing, energising host who helps me understand and simplify complex problems and gives me new perspective and confidence.
