Act for Impact is a boutique consulting firm that uses experiential learning techniques to bring about mindset shifts and behaviour change across all levels of a company, to empower global leadership. It is lead by Caroline Watson, Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and founder and director of Hua Dan, Scheherazade Initiatives and the Global Arts Impact Agenda, in partnership with Guila Clara Kessous, UNESCO Peace Ambassador and Harvard professor.
Caroline Watson is a serial entrepreneur with a background of living and working in China and the emerging markets, especially with individuals at the bottom of the pyramid. Caroline knows first hand how to build resilient leadership, having started up a unique enterprise in China in her early 20s, with little financial backing or professional business training.
Having made a success of her venture, she was selected as a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and has subsequently delivered trainings, speeches and workshops on the stages at Davos, Harvard, Oxford and LSE, and in partnership with such companies as L'Oréal, Orange, Société Générale, Citibank and Goldman Sachs. She has studied at Harvard, Oxford, Yale and INSEAD.
Now based in Europe, she has witnessed in recent years the failure of Western business leaders to pay adequate attention to both the threats and opportunities that the new world order is presenting itself, especially in light of the pandemic and increasing geopolitical instability. Still stuck in outdated ways of thinking about what constitutes the 'strength' of the Western world, she has been shocked to observe the complacency and arrogance which pose such a grave danger to the survival of the supposedly enlightened and progressive West and their enterprises.
