Quotes

[18:05] - "We really treat due diligence as an endogenous cycle. It never really stops, it’s not a ‘set it and forget it’ mentality, so [while] performance is very important…just focusing on performance is a very quick way to fail.’” ~ Mili Rosen

[35:03] - "I think communication skills are something that are very important. The ability to relate to people, particularly when you are serving clients on the outside [is so important]. Just the ability to find common ground and have a true, meaningful conversation that isn’t totally buttoned up…[and] having that ability to…have people lower their guard with you, I think that is a critical aspect as well.” ~ Ron Ahluwalia
