Harriet Green

My name is Harriet Green, and I’m honoured to have you visit my website today. I have been a successful businesswoman, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and a lifelong learner for many years now. My journey as a purpose-driven business leader has been shaped by three passions that intersect with one another: solving complex business problems, fostering deep inclusion, and promoting a culture of lifelong learning and reinvention.

Over the past two decades, I have built a reputation for driving business transformations across the globe, and I have been recognised for my achievements and impact in various ways. In 2010, I was awarded an OBE for services to electronics, and two years later, I was listed as one of the 100 most powerful women in the United Kingdom by Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4. In 2016, I was inducted into the Women in IT Hall of Fame (WITI), and in 2019, I was named one of Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Internationally. I have been acknowledged as a LinkedIn Top Voice and one of the UK’s Top Ten Influencers. More recently, I was named as part of the Top 32 Business Influencers by Business Leader.

As well as my professional pursuits, I have also been dedicated to personal growth and self-improvement. In recent years, I have taken steps to prioritise my mental and physical health, incorporating practices such as exercise, yoga, meditation, tandem cycling, and running into my daily routine. I have also committed myself to purpose-led missions, such as founding my Academies for the Young with Potential in Thailand. I also mentor more than 33 leaders from around the world, and I am passionately driving change at Mission Beyond, a unique social enterprise connecting young people from underrepresented groups with support providers and employment opportunities.

My hope is to use my experiences and knowledge to make a positive impact on the biggest issues the world is facing and on repairing the fabric of society, wherever I can daily. Do scroll through my website and reach out to me with any questions or insights!

Whatever work we are doing, we want to be great at it right? This Top Ten List is not only fun to apply, but highly effective! 

My favourite ways, that I live and breathe on a daily basis are:

1. Go the extra mile early and often

2. Find a way to stand out

3. See your manager as a person you help, not someone who tells you what to do

4. Never forget why you were hired

5. Create your own project

What are yours?
