Now is the time

 

The time is right to do what is right Martin Luther King

 

Time is always the enemy of one who wants to achieve change – time always runs out. As I write this final blog, I think of what was achieved during my term as CEO, but also of what still remains to be done. The journey to safe high quality person-centred care is a never-ending one. We strive to make a difference.

Everyone has a time and a turn

We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.” – Nelson Mandela

It  has been five years since I started my journey with you at ISQua and now it is time to say farewell. I have been honoured and privileged to be the CEO and to be tasked with transformation of the Society into a global organisation with an impact around the world. I have visited many of you over the years, meeting people who are dedicated to making a difference. I have been inspired by your determination.

Expanding our reach

"In a gentle way you can shake the world" - Mahatma Gandhi

Over the past 5 years, ISQua has moved from being a mainly upper income association of organisations and members to one that is truly global. Our members now come from just about every region of the world and this is the strength of the organisation. COVID has taught us of the need to learn rapidly and to share our experience, the humanity of suffering, redemption, sadness and joy all together.

The age of kindness

“Always be a little kinder than necessary.”James M. Barrie

It has taken a pandemic with all the consequences of lack of preparedness and often an inadequate response, for us to realise how fallible we are. There are many lessons on what true leadership should look like and how the absence of leadership can be catastrophic. The success of the response has rested on the hard work of those on the frontline and on the acceptance of citizens to be sensible and follow public health advice.
