Daryl remains fully confident in the future prospects of the business, as TEA have the right strategy to deliver sustainable growth over the long term to meet its clients resourcing needs.

He believes that Leadership is critical at all levels – at board level, at executive level, and throughout the business, while being committed to effective planning at all levels. As Chairman of the Third Eye Group, Daryl’s goal is to make sure the board combines the diverse blend of skills and international experience that is available to it now and to further enhance it for the future.
