ENFP - The Discoverer
Cameron Sims - CV
A healthy planet. Happy people.
1. People having empowering & impact-focused experiences.
2. Growing our food in regenerative ways as a means for personal, national and global development.
3. Profitable, sustainable, and enjoyable business growth in alignment with regenerating our social and ecological environment. Profit not just for the benefit of shareholders, but for staff, the environment and the wider community too.
I pride myself on my care for people and ability to collaborate within teams. I enjoy always maintaining my independence and diversity of thought which are my key strengths I can offer.
As a catalyst for positive change, I always ask questions and challenge decisions when something does not look or feel right.
