Chair, Non Executive Director and Coach

I have known Julia first in her capacity as Chief Strategy Officer appointed to lead the overall WEF global relationship for her firm and more recently in her work on the Forum’s Future of the Corporation project, focusing on stakeholder governance.  This involves interviewing chairs and board members to draw out key themes and recommendations on best-practices for how boards, management and investors can address the post-COVID governance challenges, related to people and the planet.

 Julia has brought insightful context around macro socio-economic trends driving change, industry sector nuances and a collaborative approach with the project team. It has been enjoyable working with her!
