If we focus on our people and develop them, we will make the difference to our clients.Jacquelina Dankfort
Q. How do you contribute to Turner & Townsend making a difference?
A. I think my biggest contribution is developing good relationships with clients and colleagues, and aligning our team with the client’s objectives. We are a people business and deal with people on the client side. As a result, clients like working with us, because we are fun and easy to work with and understand their business
Q. Describe your typical day.
A. My days usually start very early with calls, global or regional, because of the Mexico City time zone. When I don’t have calls or early meetings, I go to pilates at the gym before going to work. About half of my day I am in meetings, the rest I divide between supporting the teams, doing admin and working on business development. Some days I’ll have events to attend at night, or participate in team events. As the city is very big, I plan my day as much as possible to avoid spending too much time in traffic.
Q. How do you see your career progressing at Turner & Townsend?
A. There are always new opportunities to progress as our business grows. I prefer activities that keep me connected to the wider business. As I come from an academic background, I have a passion for teaching and training people, which will be necessary as we grow. In the future, we might even have a Turner & Townsend Academy where we can train our people from around the globe.
