The thread that joins it together

Christine McDougall is not someone who sits still. In the years I’ve known her, she’s moved direction and focus a number of times and that surely helps keep her energised. There’s a thread that weaves throughout her work and she never lets it go.

A self-styled ‘visionary pioneer’, Christine is high energy and gets bored very easily. Happily, I kept her engaged just long enough to get a good steer on how she operates.

I’m unbelievably curious
— Christine knows what drives her and runs a tight regime

Whether it’s her daily exercise routine, her daily blog posts or her insatiable appetite for new ways of thinking, this is not someone who stays in the same place for long. But it’s not been an easy path and as Christine explains she’s had to overcome long periods where her drive has suffered.

For me, it’s this ‘search for the thread’ that thing that unfailingly calls to her values, that underpins her ability to stay enthused and maintain the energy needed for her fast-paced way of working.
