Positivity, resilience and counting your blessings with Ryan Pereira

Episode 11,  May 08, 11:01 PM

Two days before his interview for a graduate role, Ryan Pereira didn’t realise that Exxon Mobil, the company he was applying to, was one of the largest companies in the world. Thankfully he still got the role, and never looked back. 

From growing up in tight knit supportive family in Leicester, where he dreamed of being a snooker player or a pilot, to heading to the bright lights of the City, Ryan has enjoyed a remarkable and successful career and is now Global Director, Gas and LNG at Gaffney Klein and Associates. However along the way, he has faced significant personal loss and challenges. 

Here he talks about how he gathers the resilience to move forward, the importance of counting your blessings and dealing with knockbacks. Ryan also shares how his faith, his love of football and his passion for exercise have served as important coping mechanisms.
