Brent A. Harris Vice President, EMEA & APAC

Brent Harris

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”   Paul Coelho – The Devil and Miss Prym
