The unfamiliar, fast moving global environment has changed the way we live and work already, with far-reaching impact. Leading with compassion and caring for those around us is essential, and leaders have to more than ever, focus on leading responsibly. The most important task from them is to help their people develop human resilience –the ability to adapt and engage through difficult times

The pandemic tested business resilience across industries, and posed unique challenges for our large talent led business. It has also created new opportunities and complexities, and navigating this new environment requires unique leadership skills.

Rajeev leads from the front, and we’re proud to have him as our inhouse corporate counsel
