There is a real fear of ‘love’ in business. There’s a belief that if you bring your heart into the boardroom, then somehow you must have left your brain at home. But Nicky Sparshott doesn’t buy into this. In her decades of experience as a successful leader in business, she has seen how powerful love can be to drive success and stimulate innovation & transformation in the teams she leads. So, how do you begin to fear less and love more at work?
Nicky is the CEO of Unilever Australia & New Zealand and former Global CEO of luxury retailer, T2 Tea. She has over 27 years of experience in developing and building brands, growing businesses, and transforming infrastructure and culture. She has worked across a broad range of organisations including Unilever, The Coca-Cola Company, P&G and George Patterson Y&R. She is a passionate advocate that businesses today must drive regenerative agendas, bringing together profit & purpose to positively impact people and the planet and in doing so be a true force for good. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
