All businesses and corporations that seek to be international are facing new policy challenges.  Global and international affairs is no longer just a backdrop to international commerce.  In so many ways it defines, shapes, and sometimes threatens business.  Across the world business leaders are finding that their “licence to operate” requires then to look way beyond shareholder value.  They have to manage their businesses purposefully, and demonstrate that they have a positive impact on all their stakeholders; customers, clients, suppliers, and the communities to which they belong.

So if you are leading a business that is grappling with being profitable in the context of global change, uncertain trade policy and international development; if you are facing the new demands of ESG (environment, societal and governance) risks and challenges to investment; and if you are looking to explore the new and exciting markets of the emerging economies, then I will be able to assist you.

I have 23 years of experience as CEO of four international organisations, and as a non-executive director and trustee on five multi-million pound institutions, and I have worked in and with 62 different nations.
