Those leaders who prioritise transformation with humans at the centre, will experience more successful outcomes. Transformation is seldom about the technology – it’s about bringing people along with you.

How Tricia is building a better working world

“I’m a strong believer that the more diverse the team, the better the business outcome. I take pride in mentoring colleagues, so they can fulfil their potential and realise their goals.

I am passionate about the role business must play in building a fairer and more equal society. Working with the EY Foundation, an independent charity supporting young people from low-income backgrounds to get paid work experience, I have seen first-hand the positive impact these schemes can have. I am proud to be part of an organisation that champions diversity and provides career pathways for everyone, irrespective of background.”
