Kathy Sendall's Top 10- What's Yours?
Inspiration & Wisdom
By Women's Executive NetworkMay 9, 2013
Recently at a WXN Breakfast in Calgary, 2007 WXN Top 100 Hall of Fame inductee and Corporate Director Kathleen Sendall was interviewed by WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery as they delved into a variety of questions. We think Kathy’s ‘Top 10’ list makes pretty good sense and is also a great conversation starter. Here are Kathy’s ‘Top 10’:
1. Never give up the search for the perfect mascara.
2. Never lose your sense of humour and ability to laugh, especially at yourself.
3. Listen - learn to keep your mouth shut and control your temper.

In Ulster Bank we firmly believe that respecting the differences and experiences of all our colleagues will make us a stronger organisation. If our people feel valued they are more likely to be engaged and motivated to realise their full potential. By embracing our differences we will understand each other and our customers better - helping us to become 'Ireland's most helpful bank'
Ulster Bank has always had a clearly defined approach to managing diversity.Â In fact, as part of RBS Group our policies are considered “Gold Standard” by the Opportunity NOW benchmark.
