Dara Connolly  Chief Executive Officer  ‘Common Purpose’

Georgina graced us with a rousing Keynote session on Common Purpose’s Meridian programme for senior leaders in December 2019. She visibly moved and stirred the group with her story and also her extensive work with helping senior leaders navigate their ways through turbulent waters. But it was her delivery,stature and presence that struck all that were lucky enough to be there to experience it. Common Purpose has many contributors every year on our programmes but Georgina was easily one of our most powerful and inspirational to date.
