About the Guest:

BIO: I am a curious person at my core and channel that curiosity into examining the world to figure out how we can come together to be bold, dream big, and drive change. I joined Accenture UK in the mid-90s and have been lucky enough to experience a breadth of opportunities working with clients and partners to create solutions and I love the art of the possible that technology gives you. I have spent my career architecting and delivering technology enabled solutions to clients in a range of industries and I have had the privilege to work with clients on programs from the cutting edge of innovation to large scale core solutions.

Today, leading Accenture’s Intelligent Platform Business, I am incredibly excited about the being at the heart of the digital enterprise transformation: working with incredible partner organizations to fundamentally shift how we approach technology and innovation; unlocking new business models, new ways of working and new opportunities for our clients and for our people. 

I have spent my career architecting and delivering technology enabled solutions to clients in a range of industries and I have had the privilege to work with clients on programs from the cutting edge of innovation to large scale core solutions.

Empowering young people to embrace technology is one of my huge drivers. I think empowerment often comes in the form of recovery from failure. Too much of our education system is about making humans “exam passing machines” rather than preparing them for working life by showing them how to grow when things don’t go to plan. People are so much more resilient, so much more powerful, so much more empathetic after they come back from a failure, a challenge or a loss and it’s one of my goals as a leader to help my teams to embrace.”
