Bert Miller: "Celebrate the moments."
If Ann Swain was running for Prime Minister, President, or even all round ruler of the world, I would vote for her every time. A phenomenal business leader, when she walks into a room, I fight this constant urge to stand up as a mark of respect. However, she’s also one of the funniest leaders I’ve met. She doesn’t stand on ceremony, has no problem making fun of herself and manages to inject laughter into every single thing she does.
We’re sitting on a wrought iron bench underneath a huge oak tree, sheltered from the burning afternoon sun. Chandeliers of candles are hanging from the huge trees overhead, and tea-lights in jam jars drop from every branch. Straight in front of us is the impressive Chateau Challin, majestically sweeping across our horizon.
Honestly, there’s no one I’d rather be sitting with enjoying this view than Anne Swain, CEO of APSCo and all round witty genius.
