    Internationalisation - still USA dominates view but working hard to change. Can be tough dealing with time zones of a west coast company!!

    Advice to Management

    Strong management doing the right things but CEO stock options package is ridiculous compared to size and performance of business Vs others in market and doesn't match incentives for employees

    Internal talent marketplace just being launched - due to rapid growth & nature of multi brands, talent was often being hired in; now the workforce is so large, diverse & talented there has to be an opportunity to look within first.

    Keep going - I'm loving it
