Linda has both a strong mindedness and the personal strength to share her thoughts. She balances these strengths well with her collaborative approach and preference to work as part of a team. Linda is comfortable leading the most demanding of projects and complex situations. She is just as ‘at home’ having a defined role within a larger team and delivering her responsibilities.

Greg brought his wealth of marketing and management experience to bear on Bisalloy Steels and completely revitalised the way the brand is presented and perceived not only in Australia, but also in the global performance steel market.

“In my own businesses I have connected with Greg regularly over the years in relation to his ongoing leadership, support and mentor ship Greg in my opinion has a well-established and strong background working with organisations around driving performance through culture change. This involves building high-performance teams, establishing strong behavioural boundaries, building leaders and gaining their emotional support, as well as generally empowering and engaging teams across some of the global organisations he has worked with. For the time that I have been connecting with Greg during his 5 year journey of running in leading Bisalloy, I know for a fact that he took an organisation that had a culture of conflict and low performance, to a strong and top-down lead, high performance organisation. The financial results of Bisalloy speak for themselves For the time that I am in business I will continue to connect with Greg and always appreciate his leadership, cultural capability, as well as his ‘get to the heart of the problem’ approach.”
