Speaker at TEDxLondonBusinessSchool 2018

Rick Wheatley

"Reimagining Resilience”

Rick’s career began as a logistics officer in the US Army and later in the healthcare IT outsourcing before spending the last fifteen years working with organisational change. At Xynteo, Rick has been instrumental in developing the leadership and innovation methods while designing and leading strategic client engagements with Fortune 50 companies in the areas of climate, renewable energy and more. Rick was also one of the architects of what has become the Leadership Vanguard – a programme where senior leaders from across industry collaborate over the course of a year to incubate interventions at the intersection of real human need and commercial opportunity.

Reimagining Resilience

The current global growth model is broken, helping the few, not many; working against, not with nature; contributing to short-term gains while compromising on long-term impact. We need future-fit leaders who can reinvent this growth model, not through philanthropy, but through ideas that sit at the intersection of commercial opportunity and societal needs. Rick will discuss a new leadership model to address the leadership deficit and help emerging leaders take this journey, and incubate ideas that use commercial muscle to address human problems.
