Maria believes that Business Partnering is at the heart of delivery. That you can achieve so much more for people if you build strong relationships, have real clarity on what you are trying to achieve and the commercial impact you are aiming to deliver. For her the global pandemic provided a huge catalyst from which to deliver a truly hybrid way of working, whilst driving colleague engagement. Proof that you really can drive meaningful change as we face the future of work, a future full of opportunity.
