What Drives Him
Patrick is a firm believer in a common-sense approach to construction projects. With confusion a killer to any delivery success, he has always thrived to demonstrate clarity in his work. Being a big supporter of digitalization on projects, he understands the fundamental benefit of presenting ‘the plan’ visually. His mantra being ‘work smarter, not harder’.
He is an advocate of solid communication, understanding it is one of the most undervalued and important aspects of projects, not only to the delivery team, but also to clients and stakeholders.
Patrick enjoys working in a diverse and thriving team – brainstorming ideas, solving problems and delivering ‘the job’ at hand. He is a devotee of team development through solid leadership, mentoring and sharing his experience to others.
