How would you define what you do at Bidvest Noonan?
As a GMP quality specialist, I support our GMP cleaning activities so that they are performed to the highest standard and maintain 100% compliance with all regulations. This involves travelling to many different sites and responding to their unique needs to help them perform at their best.
What has been your best day at Bidvest Noonan?
I’ve only been part of the business for a couple of months so I can say that every day has been my best day. Meeting great people for the first time is always a great experience and my first week was very exciting.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
If you push someone, they will push back, if you lead them, they will follow.
How do you motivate yourself?
Motivation is contagious, I try to associate myself with those that inspire me and strive not to be like them, but the best version of myself.
Who or what has inspired you the most?
My parents inspire me the most. I have three siblings and we didn’t have everything growing up but they made sure we had a fulfilling childhood and always put education first.
If you had a motto, what would it be?
Simply “keep moving forward”. No matter what through any adversity this motto helps me push through and do exactly what it says.
