“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions” the saying goes, and combined with his rural upbringing it has given Professor Webber powerful tools to accomplish his goals. “Adversity can breed either complete breakdown or strength of character,” he says of the farmer’s life. “The struggle becomes a mind-set. As long as you set your goals, especially if you have been able to set your goals and achieve them, you will have a formula to follow.” He is thankful for the support of his team as well— colleagues, students, secretaries and all those he has worked with at the university. “I am always looking for ways to energise the team,” he says. “I bring an energy. I am bringing that energy to my new portfolios.”
