What if it was possible to actually shape the economy, not just be part of it? The biggest challenges we face will impact on businesses, communities and individuals alike, and none of us can solve them alone. CEO of Grant Thornton UK LLP Sacha Romanovitch discusses the need for a new type of leadership that opens up possibilities, asks questions and liberates all to connect what matters to them into a wider mission.

Sacha Romanovitch is the CEO of Grant Thornton UK LLP, becoming the first female to be elected as CEO of a major accountancy firm. Her leadership is based on establishing a common purpose and liberating people to achieve it, with a focus on creating sustainable value for clients, people and broader society. As a qualified coach and NLP practitioner, Sacha is chair of the patron group for Access Accountancy, an industry-wide social mobility initiative that aims to provide equal access to the profession for talented and ambitious young people from all backgrounds. She also sits on the UK National Advisory Board to the Global Social Impact Investment Steering Group. Outside of work, Sacha loves to travel with her family.
