Harriet Green

Speaker


As a Global Business Leader, Board Director, and Business Coach, with experience living and working across 4 continents, I am often asked to keynote at major events.
Online, or in person, I think my talks resonate most powerfully at the intersection of technology-led business transformations, inclusion & diversity plus learning new skills the world needs, particularly for our younger generations.
I find the question and answer sessions of these events to be the most interesting and effective for all involved as we continue to learn from each other around the globe.
Three example keynote talks are featured below, with many more available to watch on YouTube.

“Harriet is a wonderfully engaging and authoritative speaker. She was kind enough to be a Keynote Speaker at the 2021 Chartered ABS Annual Conference at which she addressed the Deans and leaders of UK business schools. Harriet drew on her distinguished record in business to share some hugely insightful thoughts about how business schools can help prepare students for societal and business usefulness and purpose; and about the skills and behaviours that the world needs as we emerge from the ‘vortex of change’ caused by Covid-19. Harriet speaks with clarity, authenticity, and candour. Her preparation for the speaking engagement, and her delivery on the day, were both exemplary; and the session to which she contributed was one of the highlights of the conference. We are most grateful to Harriet for the depth and richness of her comments, and we look forward to welcoming her back to future Chartered ABS events. I would definitely recommend Harriet as a Keynote Speaker”

Why is innovation so important now, especially for the travel industry? Harriet explained it to the audience of Italian hospitality managers and tourism marketing professionals at the BTO in Florence, the most important event on tourism and innovation in Italy. Travel is and will increasingly be at the core of humankind and the only way to emerge from the crisis will be to innovate quickly. Bringing vivid examples from the past history in the early 1900s to the latest innovations in security in the international airports today, Harriet recounted, also from her experience, how opportunities follow every crisis and how the travel industry has already helped redesign the rules of the game. An energetic and informational speech that encouraged the sector to take unexplored paths rather than the beaten ones and not forget, on the way, “to look at the moon”. Working with Harriet Green and her staff to prepare this moment at BTO was a very positive, professional and friendly experience I would recommend to anyone.

The Oxford colleges of Jesus, Trinity and Wadham were delighted to welcome Harriet to address a Year 12 online audience at our Women in Sciences 2021 event. The event aimed to communicate the reality of being a woman in STEM while motivating and encouraging young female and non-binary students to pursue studies and careers in these fields. Harriet’s extensive experience in technology industries and in business, along with her passion for supporting future women in science and technology, provided an excellent opening speech to launch our event and engage our audience. Of particular note were Harriet’s advice to: be open to collaboration; develop your own philosophy and think about what makes you unique; put yourself forward and take risks; and don’t be afraid to ask for help. We thank Harriet for her welcome advice and experience, which will no doubt inspire young women considering future science and technology pathways.

There is no question that I am eternally and profoundly grateful to Harriet Green, a lifelong advocate and campaigner for diversity and inclusion, for supporting and championing Teens in AI from doing the talk on the Power of You during our #AIAccelerator summer programme, to speaking about us at the keynote address at AI Summit in Singapore. During her keynote address in Singapore, Harriet emphasised the importance of upskilling young people and equipping them with the skills the world currently needs and ensuring young people are able to harness the power of technology for impact. I am humbled and enormously grateful to Harriet for championing our cause and helping us address the lack of diversity in tech and artificial intelligence.  Not only is Harriet able to offer a visionary perspective on the future of work, she also has a unique ability to inspire the next generation of technologists, innovators and thought leaders by showing them that they are powerful enough to create positive change in their communities and around the world.

The overwhelming response from Teens In AI participants to Harriet’s keynote was “just what we needed to hear” “inspired” “loved it” “absolutely amazing” “the sky’s the limit”! As a powerful voice, role model, and fierce advocate for gender equality and women’s leadership Teens in AI are truly blessed to have Harriet as an integral part of its global movement and expansion in bringing about real-world change!
