Biography

Margaret Heffernan is a charismatic and authoritative speaker who takes little at face value and regularly challenges received wisdom. With an unerring ability to highlight the talent that often lies underutilised in organisations, this five-time CEO and six-time author consistently questions common business practices in ways and from angles that never fail to surprise. Her aim? To show organisations how to ‘get out of their own way’ and release the talent already in their ranks.

Originally a producer for the BBC, Margaret moved to the US in the 1980s where she became a renowned media executive through her work at The Learning Company, Standard & Poor’s, and others. To date she has written six books.

Her latest, Uncharted: How to Map the Future Together, invites us to adapt to a world in which uncertainty is now the default rather than the exception. It could not be more timely as Covid19, Brexit, AI and other volatile forces bring unprecedented disruption to lives and businesses across the globe.

  • Financial insight as an economist
  • Experience as a leader in business, military and government.
  • His role as Honorary Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership and 9 times HR Most Influential Thinker award nominee which allows him to combine his experience with leading insights and action from around the world.
  • His 2019 qualification as a neuroscience accredited executive coach so he can show his audiences how to use their full brain power, and that of their people, to make success happen.

Chris has been quoted as a business leadership expert globally in the Harvard Business Review China, FT, Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, New York Times, Business Week, Time Magazine, Washington Post, Times of India, Straits & Gulf Times and many other titles. He judges business awards and has done over 350 TV interviews on leadership and business on BBC, Sky, Bloomberg, Al Zazeera, CNBC & CNN.
