Having spent 25 years in the business world at three of the world’s largest companies – BP, Mars and, most recently, Accenture – Gib has a unique perspective on the role of business in society.

During his time at Accenture, he set up the award-winning Accenture Development Partnerships (ADP link), a corporate social enterprise that provided development sector organisations access to Accenture’s top people, knowledge and assets on a not-for-profit basis, and which delivered quarter of a billion dollars worth of services across 70 countries in its first decade.

Gib was named as the Sunday Times sponsored Management Consultant of the Year in the Best Partner/Director category in 2008. He serves on the US Board of the END Fund for Neglected Tropical Diseases and served on the UK Secretary of State for International Development’s Economic Development Advisory Group. He has also played a key role in promoting the emerging concept of social intrapreneurship as co-founder of The League of Intrapreneurs, and as a Visiting Fellow at the Doughty Centre for Corporate Responsibility at Cranfield University.

Gib also brings his own personal experience to the table. With an insider’s view of the corporate engine, and an awareness of the impact that business can have on the individual, he is passionate about creating a more mindful, empowered and balanced approach to the world of work.
