CEO, Executive Coach

In Anglo-Saxon, GLEOW means joyful disposition and is the origin of the word glee. On average we will spend 90,000 hours at work in our lifetime, so why not bring some GLEOW into it! I am the CEO and Executive Coach of GLEOW Group a consulting and executive coaching agency for FTSE 100 companies, local governments, startups and non profits.

I am also the founder & Chair of MyBnk. From 2007 to 2016, I was CEO of MyBnk, which supports young people to become financially resilient and work-ready. After having successfully campaigned to include financial education into the UK school curriculum, we now advise the UK government on financial inclusion. I am passionate about education and have lectured in Business and Social Impact at Occidental University in Los Angeles and I am an Industry Advisor at SAID Business School, University of Oxford, UK.

I am grateful to The World Economic Forum for honoring me as a Young Global Leader and to Ashoka and Aspen (Italia) thank you for making me a fellow. In 2017 Queen Elizabeth II honored me with an MBE in recognition of the work MyBnk does in financial services and entrepreneurship. Every award is shared with all the amazing people I have been lucky enough to work with, from the bright and brilliant team at MyBnk to the students at Oxford and Occidental, to my coaching and consulting clients who are not afraid to reimagine their impact and leadership.
