Di Gillett, Director of TRANSEARCH International Australia, explains why it is important to welcome challenges as opportunities, and be prepared to take a risk.
When it comes to pursuing an advanced degree, most professionals wonder 'Will the output of time and energy be worth it?'

Darren Raycroft explains some of the more specific challenges facing today's CHRO.
