“Ros is such a demanding woman.”
If setting high standards for yourself and those around you earns you the label of being “demanding”, avid wine connoisseur, Ros, will happily cheers to that. Without a role model to look up to, she graduated from the school of hard-knocks by constantly toughening and fortifying herself. It is through holding her peers and team members to the same level of excellence did she learn that being demanding helped fuel one’s journey of self-discovery.
With almost 30 years of experience under her belt and leadership positions across various industries, Ros is surprisingly modest in narrating her previous accomplishments. Instead, she finds joy in what she has yet to achieve. “To find purpose, you need to push yourself very hard.” In an age where people often rely on interpretive signs from the universe or sudden bursts of inspiration for enlightenment, Ros’ philosophy is perhaps a timely reminder that there are no shortcuts in the school of life. Only by sitting through the lectures of failure and lessons of dismay can each individual realise their worth and potential.
Alongside other admirable women in Banyan Tree’s management team, who Ros fondly refers to as “comrades”, she is confident that more will toast to dreaming big, aiming high, and being unapologetic for having standards.
