I am a full-time Food R&D executive in a leading multinational company, so my day work is to lead a team to make projects successful and my team members proud and thriving. That I made it this high in the corporate tree is quite an achievement considering my tendency for naïve honesty and unpopular truths - whatever the situation, I have always been true to my authentic self and my inner drive for positive change.
I want to be a changemaker towards business-for-good from the inside-out. Most of the time a changemaker is perceived as a whistle-blower or a trouble-maker, and it certainly worked against me in the first decade of my career. Once I got the hang of it, I became not only able to impact positively in my circle of influence but in time I also founded a grass-root initiative joined by many change champions and endorsed by the organization.
In a nutshell, I figured out how to hack the system (the hard and painful way, let's be clear...) and stay my true, straight-talking and sometimes inconvenient self in a way that serves me, my career, the company I work for and a little bit of the world when possible.
