Given the nature of my work, it’s natural for me to engage with the World Economic Forum, which sits at the intersection of policy, strategy and thought leadership.


I’ve been a member of the WEF’s Global Agenda Councils am currently a member of their Expert Network. I have taken part in dozens of meetings around the world, including Davos, the annual GAF meetings and “summer Davos” in China.


I’ve also attended ad hoc meetings in the WEF’s New York office, their San Francisco Fourth Industrial Revolution campus and at venues in Istanbul, Vienna, London, Brussels and elsewhere.


I’ve participated in a number of WEF working groups, including one on the future of financial services, and I’ve been an academic co-lead of their Digital Platforms & Ecosystems group, and a co-author of their White Paper on the topic
