Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Organisation Quotes from famous authors such as Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Steph McGovern, Subramanian Swamy, Dominic Cummings, Eric Holder. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!
Business requires understanding financial matters, but management is different from running the financial aspects of the business – it requires understanding complex systems, how they operate, the nature of organisations, what happens when people interact in groups and how to motivate and guide people.
Despite being a business journalist at the BBC for ten years, working behind the scenes on our high-profile news programmes, I was viewed by some in the organisation to be ‘too common for telly.’
The BJP is only a front organisation. It is not a political party.
Priorities are fundamental to politics because of inevitable information bottlenecks: these bottlenecks can be transformed by rare good organisation but they cannot be eradicated.
One cannot understate the importance of eliminating Bin Laden. He was a symbolic head of the organisation and, as we now know, an operational head of the organisation.
Entrepreneurs are like cats, because they are independent and do their own thing. Although organisations say they like cats, what they really want is sheep that they can herd.
Leaders of organisations, political parties and large businesses frequently fail to talk in a straight and entirely truthful fashion.
Part of me loves to control and to exert power, but it’s not the best part of me at all. What I am slowly learning is that allowing others to have power too makes us a better organisation – many brains are simply better than one.
I believe that the capacity that any organisation needs is for leadership to appear anywhere it is needed, when it is needed.
You take out an injunction against somebody or some organisation and immediately news of that injunction and the people involved and the story behind the injunction is in a legal-free world on Twitter and the Internet. It’s pointless.
Actona is a healthy company with strong values, very competent management and a solid organisation.
There is not much point in establishing an organisation like the independent commission for information retrieval, or the other organisations that we agreed to, if we do not encourage people to participate.
I believe in the difference that a man or woman can make at the top of an organisation. Once you have a really good guy in place at the top, the next most important thing is continuity of management as opposed to a revolving door.
International summits and organisations like WTO take decisions, which will bind us, and if we are not present in such summits, we may be hurt by the decisions taken.
Very often, we think of leadership being at the very top of an organisation. I think what’s unique about ABG is that we have a very strong cadre of leaders across the organisation who are highly empowered and therefore play a very major role in the growth and evolution of the organization.
I involve myself in an organisation called Tear Fund.
Our suspicions are being confirmed that Nashi will serve as a cover for storm brigades that will use violence against democratic organisations.
I think the people in this country have had enough of experts with organisations from acronyms saying that they know what is best and getting it consistently wrong.
An organisation is always a very dynamic situation, you always need to improve yourself and organisation is one of the tools you’ve got.
Basically, to lead without a title is to derive your power within the organisation not from your position but from your competence, effectiveness, relationships, excellence, innovation and ethics.
Unions can play a valuable role in large organisations where it is difficult to talk to a thousand people. They can negotiate annual pay awards with management, represent grievance cases, and explain and advise on complicated changes in employment or pension law.
Once employees feel challenged, invigorated and productive, their efforts will naturally translate into profit and growth for the organisation.
There are loads of good principles we’ve lost as a nation. Discipline. Organisation. Respect. I was brought up with those.
The sky is the limit as long as you keep the rooms practical, and I have become better at that since I had children. Function, form and organisation are all important.
A high percentage of organisations develop a military rationale, whereby only a very small number of people make all of the decisions. There is little wonder, then, that people aren’t keen to get out of bed and come to work on a Monday morning.
The Human Rights Organisation deceives the world by calling itself a human rights council.
The 2013 deal, whereby the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons verified the destruction of 95% of Syria’s declared chemical weapons, was negotiated between Russia and the U.S. and either the Russians haven’t honored their side of the deal or they have been betrayed by the Syrians.
My dad has spent 20 years of his life working in child protection and writing policy for organisations across Australia in order to recognise and safeguard against abuse.
Why is the government of India uncomfortable with Jamaat-e-Islami? It is an organisation that has worked tirelessly for Kashmiris.
Grass-roots clubs and organisations were the places growing up where I found solace. It’s important that young people have that space and time to realise their potential.
San Antonio is more of a home than anything to be honest. They saw me as a huge part of their organisation to continue this Spurs culture and that’s nice to know, and that’s something I’m really keen to do.
People are too keen to follow standard preconceptions of how organisations should work. All too often, we feel that we are unable to make changes and so hope that someone, somewhere in your organisation knows what we are doing and what the overall aim is.
The internet could be a very positive step towards education, organisation and participation in a meaningful society.
I think it’s a little much to expect the organisation to solve the problem of racial parity. We do see a fast-increasing influx of Asians, black folks. I actually see black folks out here, unlike some of our liberal critics.
The NHS is a national organisation, but it is best delivered locally.
There are plenty of organisations making a real difference to the lives of gay people around the country that do need our help, so why undermine the wonder of ‘Strictly’ by politicising it?
I really focus on the ball, I really focus on the work, and I really focus on creating all the growth opportunities for anyone in the organisation that’s willing to do it.
Gujarat is a pro-business state, where civil society organisations are comfortable with working to make sure that business does not suffer. Large parts of the rest of India, for better or worse, are very different.
In the summer of 2009, I modestly predicted that most major news organisations would be charging for content within 12 months. Charging, I argued, would not only plug the revenue gap; it would also help to re-establish value in their news product.
If you don’t have the right culture, in the difficult moments, the tree is going to shake, so my job is to convince everybody that this is how we are going to live, and if you are going to be part of this organisation it has to be in these terms and in this way.
We have long suspected that the faceless organisations that run our world – be it the church, multinational conglomerates or the government – keep things from us.
I studied politics and economics at Bristol, and people always assumed that I’d go into politics or a non-government organisation when I left. I might well do this later on. I’d love to represent a West Country seat in the House of Commons.
We need organisations like Vote Leave to operate permanently to give a voice to those who otherwise won’t be heard.
I think when it comes to re-signing with an organisation, there’s no real compromise if you’re trying to move on.
When you’re independent and not attached to a major media organisation, they just look at you as if to say, ‘Who are you again?’
We developed a system in Romania that was very successfully continued for a number of years, but I don’t know if it was because of some conflict in the organisation or whether there was government interference… but somehow, they have forgotten the importance of raising gymnasts to be ready for every Olympics.
Whether individuals or organisations, we follow those who lead not because we have to, but because we want to. We follow those who lead not for them, but for ourselves.
Food redistribution is economically sensible, ecologically pressing, and socially responsible; it is high time food corporations woke up to it and governments started funding the organisations that facilitate it.
The World Health Organisation has a lot of its medical experts sitting in Geneva while hospitals in Africa have no drugs and desperate patients are forced to seek medication on the black market.
There are few forces for good as extensive and important as the United Nations. Being able to work with them and other global aid organisations for World Humanitarian Day is a humbling and extraordinary opportunity.
Not being part of the BBC with ‘Top Gear’ any more does pain me, because it’s an organisation I approve of.
Every failing organisation has the same stories, people find it very hard to learn from the most successful organisations and people.
We are so accustomed to think of religion as a thing between individual men and God that we can hardly enter into the idea of a religion in which a whole nation in its national organisation appears as the religious unit.
There’s no shortage of fighting talent in the UFC; that’s what makes it such a great organisation, and that’s why I’m so proud to be a part of it.
One of the secrets of Fox News’ outsized success – it’s the most profitable news organisation in the U.S. and, quite likely, the world – is that it saw the country full of liberal occupiers and Fox News’ viewers as the heroic resistance.
The new narrative for Europe should be about the need to have a responsible organisation, the need to be able to defend our interests and promote our values, like human rights.
A restructuring of an organisation is always a difficult time and delicate.
Every political party, rotary club, every college, school, all organisations organise running events. This is something that ignites the aspirations of people.

In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.
The average husband enjoys the total effect of his home but is usually unable to contribute any of the details of work and organisation that make it enjoyable.
Who can forget that in critical times of war in 1962, 1965 and 1971, Naga underground organisations did not fire on the Indian Army? They showed restraint.
There is an honourable tradition in British public life that those charged with authority at the top of an organisation should accept responsibility for what happens in that organisation. I am therefore writing to the prime minister today to tender my resignation as chairman of the BBC.
States can be deterred by the fear of retaliation; non-state organisations cannot by deterred at all.
The Wellcome Trust is a hugely important organisation, and it is vital that its fundraising continues unabated.
I’m the spokesperson for the Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees. My father was from Syria. It’s an American initiative, and it’s multi-faith. So, it’s maybe 60-65 different organisations, Jews, Christians, Hindus… Anyway, it’s very important and serious.
I’ve had the privilege of playing in our top seven leagues and the main differences when stepping up are organisation, athleticism and decisiveness. Believe me, the gap is even more evident when you achieve the holy grail of the Premier League.
The RSS is an anti-national organisation. The quicker it is disintegrated, the better for India.
Every social organisation which is rooted in life still lasts a long time, even after the conditions from which it drew its strength have changed in a manner unfavourable to it.
Proliferation of nuclear weapons to terrorist organisations is far more dangerous than proliferation of nuclear weapons to states, even states like North Korea.
One of the annoyances of working for The Guardian is that, obsessed as the organisation is with its digital and social media presence and its own sense of singular importance, editors would militantly try to edit your tweets.
In Latin America, specialists and polling organisations have, for some time, observed that the extension of formal democracy was accompanied by an increasing disillusionment about democracy and a lack of faith in democratic institutions.
You know, the media and politicians are always gonna be in a bit of tension with one another and probably most of the time that’s healthy and indeed even creative. But it’s where – it’s really when news organisations are used as kind of instruments of politics that it gets tricky.
There’s a lot of women’s organisations, but they’re all working separately. If you get people together, as a collaborative voice, it’s strong.
Apparently, all foreign media organisations have to follow an approved script of acceptable coverage, lest they are accused of interference. And make no mistake: we’re not talking about neutrality. The only acceptable approach was, ‘Support Clinton, attack Trump’.
Life in a Chinese village is much more organised because the Chinese Communist Party has a presence even in the remotest Chinese village – a presence of the kind that no governmental or non-governmental organisation has in Indian villages.
You have to do the tactics to win games because if you have good organisation and know what to do, you’ll know where the weaknesses are in the opponent.
My mom’s a social worker, and my dad works in non-profit organisations.
Cryptography is the essential building block of independence for organisations on the Internet, just like armies are the essential building blocks of states, because otherwise one state just takes over another.
For success of any mission, it is necessary to have creative leadership. Creative leadership is vital for government, non-governmental organisations as well as for industries.
When two people are together, they are not two but six: what each one is, what each one thinks he or she is, and what each one thinks the other is. And what is true for people is also true for countries and organisations.
I have my Masters degree in international relations, banking job experience with Citibank, and I have also worked in developmental organisations.
The art of government is the organisation of idolatry.
I feel that art deals with issues way before any political organisation.
From an organisation point of view, I want the BJP to be the bright national political party in all the states of India and having an impact on social life.
There are so many people, organisations, parities, religions. Whatever you try, someone or the other will be offended.
I would like to see the gay population get on board with feminism. It’s a beautiful organisation and they’ve done so much. It seems to me a no-brainer.
Priesthood is not a convenient, historically conditioned form of Church organisation, but is rooted in the Incarnation, in the priesthood and mission of Christ himself.
My survival case comes with a purpose and obligation, which is why I have launched Nadia’s Initiative, an organisation dedicated to helping women and children who have been victimised… My initiative is trying to get support needed to get Sinjar rebuilt.
It’s called tactical periodisation because you push the physical and the psychological part together, but with organisation. So you run, but you run all the time with the ball. Always with the ball.
Active citizenship doesn’t just mean running for office or going into politics; it means starting organisations that promote change or solve a problem, pursuing social good with economic success.
Any organisation has to go through at least one depression to see how it survives, and a normal economic cycle takes seven years.
It should be underscored that our goal is not, and should not, be a crusade against the ICC but a solemn call for the organisation to take Africa’s concerns seriously.
I tend to be a bit of a proselytiser for the importance of royal courts, but all politics – in fact every form of human organisation, and this is something that’s so dreadful for all those brought up in the 60s – naturally reverts to monarchy. Newspapers have editors, companies have chief executives.
Our enemy in Syria is Daesh: it’s not about containing but destroying this organisation.
President Donald Trump’s decision to ban American aid to all organisations that in any way advocate women’s right to abortions is very unfortunate. All experience shows that this kind of decision does not reduce the number of abortions; rather, it forces girls and women to revert to life-threatening procedures.
The many questions about the bombing of Yugoslavia by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation – meaning primarily the United States – come down to two fundamental issues: ‘What are the accepted and applicable ‘rules of world order,’ and how do these apply in the case of Kosovo?’
I don’t think anybody out there in the media, U.N., human rights organisations, has any moral right whatsoever to level any accusations against me or against Rwanda. Because, when it came to the problems facing Rwanda, and the Congo, they were all useless.
Muslim organisations tend to have a low level of organisation. The communities in Europe are quite diverse.
One of the great difficulties as you rise up through an organisation is that your prior competencies are exploded and broken apart by the territory you’ve been promoted into: the field of human identity.
Even now it is no longer composed of the traditional political class, but of a composite layer of corporate leaders, high-level administrators, and the heads of the major professional, labor, political, and religious organisations.
Well, if the NATO countries don’t make more of their troops usable and don’t get the equipment to get them fast where the action is, then the organisation will suffer and will increasingly become irrelevant.
The whole essence of humanitarian work and the Geneva Convention is that neutral, impartial organisations can operate during war.
I started a festival of short films produced for television, and as the secretary of the organisation that ran it I used to work very closely with the state government.
Kaepernick’s protest has been very successful. I really appreciate the fact that he’s been giving away money to organisations; he pledged to give away a million dollars, and he’s been doing it.
Economic activity can help repair war-torn societies, but if it’s not conducted responsibly, it can also create or prolong violence. Companies and international organisations must help strengthen communities and overcome the trauma of violence.
In the rest of the world, rich people will give a donation, and businessmen give to charities. But in Mexico, the execution capacity of what we call the social sector is missing. I find it much more effective to set up the actual social organisation and then fund it with my money.
At Unilever, we are committed to building an inclusive organisation where all individuals feel safe, valued, and supported – irrespective of gender, background, or any other difference.
There are thousands of ways to take action. For example, plant trees, pick up litter, join an organisation or movement that makes a difference and especially try to influence adults and put pressure on people in power.
The Congress leadership always denied responsibilities to me both within the government and within the party organisation… They would always tell me my image as a Hindu leader was a constraint on my capacity as a political leader.
If you think about the traditional mafia stories we grew up on, it is always about the death of criminal organisations – things like the ‘Sopranos’ – the last vestiges of once proud families subsumed by the modern era.
Mexico established a unique three-part governing system shared by the government, the information commission and civil society organisations.
I am proud to be a Next 20 ambassador for Kick It Out and take this role very seriously for an organisation that does such good work.
Now that mobile phones and the internet have altered the epistemic selective landscape in a revolutionary way, every religious organisation must scramble to evolve defences or become extinct.
There is a new model of leadership in the world that rides on the premise that every single person in the organisation can be a leader. Titles are important for structure and order, but real power does not come from titles.
Yooralla, like most disability service organisations, is full of good people who are passionate about the rights of people with disabilities.
British electoral law forbids different campaign organisations acting in concert unless they have a shared cap on spending.
People are leaving trails everywhere they go; automated web crawlers tell you an awful lot about their social activities. The flow of information in fundamentally unobtrusive ways into social control organisations has risen dramatically.
We’re not short of movements proclaiming that a different world is possible, but unless we can coordinate them into an international movement, capitalism just laughs at all these little organisations.
When the British became Christian, Christianity in no way altered their political organisation.
Gladio had been necessary during the days of the Cold War but, in view of the collapse of the East Block, Italy would suggest to Nato that the organisation was no longer necessary.
We must find a better way to enforce the Equalities Act, rather than require the injured party to sue a business, and we must, through legislation and legal action, get tougher on those organisations and industries who ignore or, worse still, exploit disabled people.
No government, no organisation, no citizen can afford to be less than vigilant in combating bigotry, intolerance and hatred. And frankly, our way of life depends on that vigilance.
Actually I can’t imagine Nato troops on the ground and I think it’s also important to send that very clear message to the UN and other organisations right now so that appropriate plans can be in place in due time and the Gaddafi regime can collapse soon.
Zhvania was the general secretary of the organisation which I founded, the Citizens’ Union. It was the biggest organisation and came first in all elections, and Zhvania was the leader.
The values I have as a person are the same as the whole Spurs organisation and that’s why it feels like home.
The language of chemistry simply does not mesh with that of biology. Chemistry is about substances and how they react, whereas biology appeals to concepts such as information and organisation. Informational narratives permeate biology.
I think it’s great that we have organisations like Greenpeace. In a pluralistic society, we want to have people who point out all the problems that the Earth could encounter. But we need to understand that they are not presenting a full and rounded view.
Poverty is multidimensional. It extends beyond money incomes to education, health care, political participation and advancement of one’s own culture and social organisation.
My own dealings with the RSS and allied organisations have been extremely positive and a pleasant experience.
If you look at the pipeline of women moving up through the organisation, it’s a matter of time and experience that they develop and performance that allows them to move into senior levels.
Jesus picked up twelve men from the bottom ranks of business and forged them into an organisation that conquered the world.
The Europeans and Americans have said the martyrdom operations are why Hamas has been put on the terrorist list. But now these operations have stopped. Did they then remove Hamas from the list of terrorist organisations? We do not launch wars. We are people resisting occupation.
There is no degree of human suffering which in and of itself is going to bring about change. Only organisation can change things.
It is of course true that many of our universities are large and complex organisations, requiring highly skilled individuals to run them effectively.
Despite a decade of criticism and budget cuts, the specialised UN agencies have far more expertise and hands-on experience than any other organisations in the world.
We must be open to creating alliances of progressive and socialist organisations on a local level, particularly given the undemocratic electoral system face.
I always run inclusive and successful organisations.
Back in the 1970s, Kodak tried to give $25m to a black civil rights organisation in Rochester, New York. The company’s shareholders rose up in arms: making this politically charged offering wasn’t the reason they had entrusted Kodak with their money. The donation was withdrawn.
Europe’s budget plans are better designed: countries from France to Greece are raising retirement ages; others, from Britain to Germany, have created new organisations and rules to encourage fiscal probity. But Europe risks overkill.
If you want to study one of these strange organisms, you had better have a good justification. It’s not good to study gene organisation in some obscure insect that no one’s ever heard about.
After we leave the E.U., the British Standards Institute should also remain a member of the European Standards Organisation, which is not an E.U. institution.
Fifa would benefit hugely from the experience of former players from a variety of backgrounds including Africa and Asia. There aren’t many senior staff who have played at the top level and the organisation needs balance.
There is, therefore, no solution possible other than an economy directed by the workers through their organisations of control-through the workers’ syndicates.
We have adopted a multi-pronged strategy against the attempts to radicalise the youth of the country. On the one hand, we have successfully de-radicalised our youth, and on the other hand, our security agencies have also taken action against certain individuals for their links and association with terror organisations.
With the EU taking in ten more countries and adopting a new Constitution, organisations need more than ever intelligent professional help in engaging with the EU institutions.
I’m very good at compartmentalising my life. I did motor-racing for a while, stopped, didn’t miss it. I did power-boat racing for a while, stopped, didn’t miss it. I had such a good run at the BBC. I had a hell of a CV with arguably the greatest broadcasting organisation in the world. But I’ve never missed it since.
From the boys’ point of view, scouting puts them into fraternity-gangs, which is their natural organisation, whether for games, mischief, or loafing; it gives them a smart dress and equipments; it appeals to their imagination and romance; and it engages them in an active, open-air life.
There are immense numbers of potential entrepreneurs who can start their own businesses among the people who are working in large organisations.
I’m a big micro manager; I’m a stickler about organisation; everything needs a place, a purpose, and micro managing myself even when I’m in the studio.
Britain First is an extremist organisation which seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which spread lies and stoke tensions.
All over the world, the barriers between what is inside an organisation and outside an organisation are being smoothed out. In the military, the use of contractors means that what is the military and what is not the military is smoothed out.
My personal view is that organisations have a capacity to throw up extraordinary leaders to suit the occasion.
The BBC should not have a cheerleader. It should have somebody who runs the organisation in the interests of the public and that should be a chairman.
There is a real fear around shifting from our existing economic system because people believe it gives us social organisation, a sense of freedom, and the ability to be nice to each other. Growth is seen as a social lubricant that allows us to be socially responsible.
I think it is quite dangerous for an organisation to think they can predict where they are going to need leadership. It needs to be something that people are willing to assume if it feels relevant, given the context of any situation.
The BBC is a very confident broadcasting organisation and it needs brands like ‘Top of the Pops’ and ‘Top Gear.’
It is motivating seeing how powerful it is when people come together and show support for a fantastic organisation like the NHS. We are very lucky to have it. We should appreciate it and not take it for granted.
After the fall of Communism, the biggest mistake Boris Yeltzin’s regime made was not to disband the KGB altogether. Instead it changed its name to the FSB and, to many observers, morphed into a gangster organisation, eventually headed by master criminal Vladimir Putin.
The initial organisation, we called ourselves the Network Working Group, consisted of 6 to 10 people. We then quickly grew to 30 people and then to 50 people.
I used to work for the World Health Organisation in poor countries all over the world – Bangladesh, Korea, the Philippines and India. You learn a whole range of things about how other people are living and try to connect with them to gain an understanding of where they’re coming from.
I want to get involved in causes I believe in, and I know so many others that want to also get involved, but it’s hard to know how. Often, it’s through big organisations, and you don’t know exactly where your money is going or what effect you are having.
I used to say I’m not a business. I’m not! But I’ve had to come round to it, to acknowledge that you had to be an organisation and had to have a business dimension in order to do your passion.
If values matter in an organisation, you have to be prepared to act consistently.
The Special Forces is an aggressive and violent organisation. I wouldn’t want to see a woman going through that and getting shot at.
The European organisation contemplated could not oppose any ethnic group, on other continents or in Europe itself, outside of the League of Nations, any more than it could oppose the League of Nations.
We can reorient our products and business strategy because we are an agile organisation.
When you join a political party, you are attaching yourself with an organisation of skilled people. And when you work with an organisation, your working capacity becomes double. One can perform better with the help of an organisation to implement their thoughts.
The community of masses of human beings has produced an order of life in regulated channels which connects individuals in a technically functioning organisation, but not inwardly from the historicity of their souls.
An empowered organisation is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organisational success.
What I would say is governments need assistance to run their organisations more efficiently just like businesses do.
If there are malpractices in sports, part of the solution lies in the organisations themselves taking a very strong view and cleaning up the mess from within.
Excellence is a great starting point for any new organisation but also an unending journey.
I didn’t go to university. I studied theatre in high school and worked with Canberra Youth Theatre and The Street Theatre and other theatre organisations in Canberra, and that’s how I got my training.
I work with amazing organisations: I work with I’m A Performer With Disability, and I work with a clinic which tries to get opportunities for people with disabilities to work in the film and TV industry, and we’re making strides, and they’re making strides.
Our education system teaches the young what to think, not how to think. And if you ever wonder why so many things don’t work properly any more, or why you can’t get any sense out of so many organisations, this is one of the main reasons.
News organisations that have been around a while have a lot of traditions and ways of doing things that may have served them for many years but perhaps make them less flexible in the digital era. As an entrepreneur, it just makes more sense to start something new.
In ideal form of social control is an atomised collection of individuals focused on their own narrow concern, lacking the kinds of organisations in which they can gain information, develop and articulate their thoughts, and act constructively to achieve common ends.
Managers develop organisations; leaders develop people.
Put not your trust in new leaders, better systems, new organisations or regulatory reorganisation. They may well be good and necessary, but will to some degree fail.
Obama better understood community organisation and peer-to-peer communication than any recent candidate, and we are applying that lesson.
There are too many organisations – and the BBC is a fabulous organisation – that seem to think it’s OK to badger, hector and threaten people.
George W. Bush: a person who is the ultimate outcome of the American condition. Someone promoted above ability because of circumstance and organisation and empathy. You don’t have to be intelligent. A moron in a hurry could know that you don’t prevent war by having a war.
The fully developed bureaucratic apparatus compares with other organisations exactly as does the machine with the non-mechanical modes of production.
Leaving the E.U. with no deal means Britain would default to World Trade Organisation rules with our biggest trading partner.
The United Nations World Charter for Nature, section 21, empowers any nongovernmental organisation or individual to uphold international conservation law in areas beyond national jurisdiction and specifically on the high seas.
I think a lot of sporting organisations are really sitting up and taking notice, putting in some great programs and investing a lot into women’s sports.
There cannot be any company or organisation where 100% of the people are sadhus or mahatmas.
The Clintons are one of the most closed political organisations operating in America today. It is a kind of secret society.
Organisations and institutions are, at the end of the day, manned by people who put their shared vision above individual interests.
I’ve fought for different organisations, different titles, from all around the world.
This medal goes to show that you don’t always have to have the best facilities, the best organisation, the best of everything to achieve.
I did not establish the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as a protest organisation.
Ineos is a friendly organisation. Very few people leave. It’s collegiate. There’s not much politics, and we like decent people. We don’t like arrogance or bullies.
The responsibility for good government lies not just with governments themselves but also with every other part of the system they operate in, including media, non-governmental organisations and the public.
London is the headquarters of the International Maritime Organisation, the location of the largest insurance market, and houses a significant ship-broking community, apart from the many other professional services related to shipping.
In the end, does it really matter if newspapers physically disappear? Probably not: the world is always changing. But does it matter if organisations independent enough and rich enough to employ journalists to do their job disappear? Yes, that matters hugely; it affects the whole of life and society.
You have got the right strategy, the right geography; you have got the right customers. You need to prioritise them better; we need to grow them better, mind them better. We need to give more value to them, and we need to execute a lot of areas in the organisation where we are not executing.
So is civil society prepared for the future? Probably not. Most organisations have to live hand to mouth, juggling short-term funding and perpetual minor crises. Even the bigger ones rarely get much time to stand back and look at the bigger picture. Many are on a treadmill chasing after contracts and new funding.
To think that our political organisation is immutable is the best way to hand the country over to the extremes.
