    Vattenfall’s CEO Anna Borg: How this energy leader makes change happen

    Borg is the first-ever female CEO for this European energy company - a firm committed to fossil-free living in a generation.

Not moving fast enough, however, can lead to ‘devastating’ risks for business and the planet. She explains what’s needed to scale new technologies. She also shares the frameworks and questions she and her team use to weigh big decisions and to drive transformation while staying competitive.

    Wipro’s Thierry Delaporte: Connecting as a remote CEO during COVID-19

    Starting remote as CEO during COVID-19 meant reshaping the firm’s operations -- and building trust with thousands -- mostly over Zoom. In fact, it was more than a year before Thierry Delaporte could meet many of his teams in person thanks to travel restrictions. Delaporte talked to Meet The Leader about starting in Paris as a remote CEO and Managing Director for this India-headquartered company (with staff around the world) and how he focused his communication to build connections and help simplify the company’s operations. He also explained how a favorite hobby -- sailing -- prepared him to navigate COVID's uncertainty and how those lessons could help any leader.
