Giselle has worked for the United Nations World Water Assessment Programme, is a fellow of the UC Berkeley-based Beahrs Environmental Leadership Programme, and holds an MBA from London Business School.
She works with NGOs, governments and international organisations, locally, nationally and internationally on issues of public education and civil society involvement in the area of water, in particular young people and children. She is currently developing new approaches to raise awareness among managers of how they can incorporate sustainability into their businesses and everyday professional lives.
This lively presentation will provide an overview of Giselle’s book The Sustainable MBA: The Manager’s Guide to Green Business, introducing how sustainability is being embedded into accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics, finance, marketing, operations, organisational behaviour and strategy, with lots of practical examples from companies around the world.
Giselle will provide additional insights into working between academia, industry, and government and non-government organisations, how this has influenced her work, and techniques she has found useful in practice.
