What keeps Ian motivated for his work?

‘The people around me and working with their creativity and energy to get the job done. Knowing that the work has purpose to it and can make a difference to people’s lives and environments.’

Does Ian think that Covid has affected his work?

‘It has made me realise we can have balance to both work and life. That not all meetings need to be in person and that there are different ways to get the job done. It also made me appreciate the outdoors more just because in lock down one of the best ways to stay motivated was walking in the outdoors’
