What has been consistent across all this time is Julia’s leadership approach: Strong strategic intuitive understanding of the commercial business drivers; exceptional influencing and consensus building ability; foresight to spot emerging market trends; and early advocate for issues such as: Inclusion & Diversity and Sustainable Business, that are only now more mainstream. Julia is a person of exceptional integrity, she walks the talk, and shines the light on others so that they may grow and thrive.
Engaging with Julia has been a joy. I am always searching for strategic perspectives and valuable points of difference in our engagements and Julia is squarely in that space. That turns on Julia’s ability to be right on point with the critical developments and trends within ESG and sustainability – and elegantly translating that into practical inputs that cover leading internal teams, supply chain management and the outcompeting the market. Terrific.
Julia brings to her work the benefit of a deep understanding of the changing expectations of global buyers of legal services and from her executive career, what it takes to influence engagement within a firm. She helped me shift more into a client centric mindset, identify the client needs and from there articulate how we as a firm, and I personally, can best differentiate our services. This enabled me to build my confidence and personal leadership style. Capturing my top tips for success, gave me an ongoing guide to use in practice.
