My interaction with Minto has been one I can confidently say has shaped my mindset, career and approach to work, the corporate space and life as a whole. Her level of professionalism and leadership is unmatched and highly commendable. She is visionary, motivating and a trailblazer. You can always count on her to deliver consistently above what she promises and within the stipulated timelines, if not sooner. Her mentorship has empowered me to think big, think more and be a servant leader. Her most significant strength is her ability to listen and truly make balanced, fair and candid decisions.
