In sharing his career across many sectors and counties, including for companies with a billion customers, Roberto describes a common theme in leaving a positive mark on society and follows the logic in how a business that helps people to live better, results in a business that makes profit.
Roberto considers the revolutions in leadership and people management that have and are happening through the pandemic, advocating that flexibility is key in ways of working and redefining the workplace, and providing examples of new initiatives at Danone.
Asking everyone in HR to help shape and deliver the purpose of their organisation, Roberto emphasises that the power is in your hands!
