Georgina has a background in psychology, innovation and project management. She solidified her passion for improving leadership during her time at the NeuroLeadership Institute, where she had the privilege of leading clients through their behaviour change journeys, unearthing their goals and challenges, and advising on best practice. Growing the Delivery team in EMEA from the ground up, she was responsible for all corporate engagements delivered by the region. She has managed and provided thought leadership on over 300 projects; from individual keynotes to large, digital programs reaching thousands in all corners of the globe.
Passionate about gender equality, she has supported clients to create inclusion and remove unconscious bias on a personal and systemic level. Reaching an obvious ‘glass ceiling’ in her own career was the catalyst for change, and that spark grew into FeForte.
