Glynis Bryan, CFO, Insight
My mother -- I am who I am because of her. I grew up in Jamaica, where they had very different roles for young men and women. My mother was also a finance professional. She taught by example -- problem solving, values and ethics. A few of her principles: you can accomplish anything with hard work and determination; treat everyone as you’d like to be treated; pride goeth before a fall. I didn’t fully appreciate her influence until I went off to university and discovered I had a core value system -- which is still the core of who I am today.
