From CFO to Executive Coach to Climate Activist, Stuart Pickles

In November 2021, LC and WHU hosted their fifth virtual conference: The Open University on the topic of “Organizational Purpose: Opportunity or Opportunism?” featuring among other speakers Stuart Pickles, former CFO of Fosters and now the Director of Aim Higher Leadership and a climate activist. In his keynote “What keeps me up at night” he describes his journey from a senior executive in a big company to a climate activist. He talks about the doubts that led him to change his career, how his commitment to more climate justice arose and why it is so important to take action.
