What is the single most important challenge facing clients today and how can we help?
Banking and financial services globally are accelerating their technology and data transformation: our access to ‘future-fit’ leaders across sectors and internationally allows us to be part of this fundamental industry change.
How do we keep diversity at the forefront of client discussions?
I believe strongly in the positive benefits of cultural and cognitive diversity, and always encourage clients to think broadly and build diverse teams and pipelines for the future.
