Gemma Arregui has over 9 years of experience in consultancies within regulated industries (Finance; Pharmaceutical & Insurance). She has a solid track record of delivering successful results through multiple (transformational) projects across back and front office with immediate and sustainable results. Gemma, made the conscious decision to develop her career within the business environment. The aim was to develop resilience and creative thinking encompassed by a dominating bottom-line environment. This was the objective, to develop high-quality leadership and transformational skills that could best be used in the third sector.
Gemma was raised in an environment that embrace young women to develop and think for themselves within a culture that has a close history and highly values human rights. Her motivation to become a leader was to mentor teams and keep developing her understanding and experience of providing a work environment that could offer a healthier and balanced work force.
Gemma, has learnt through leadership and change management that the essential ingredient is collaboration. She states “Even though change is the only constant in life and history, it is disruptive to the comfort we seem to seek so strongly, hence it is important that if we wish to change a concept, symbol, a story, to understand the language, environment and influence we can impact on. Throughout mentoring and leading teams, it has been crucial to collaborate with all stakeholders. It is by challenging with persistence and compassion the ‘status quo’ and empowering both female and male human beings that we will achieve great projects.”
