International Guru on Leadership, Performance and Organisational Culture

René Carayol specialises in leadership, culture and business transformation bound together with a compelling philosophy founded on his own board level experience. He asks awkward and uncomfortable questions; how do you change old-fashioned, risk-adverse processes that are ill suited to emerging global markets? How do you secure and nurture the talents of a new generation of leaders? How do you overcome cynicism and complacency, and replace them with resolve? René has built his reputation on getting to know the culture of businesses better than they do themselves, providing answers and solutions no matter how big or small the problems. René is one of the world’s leading executive coaches, working with some of the Fortune 500’s top CEO’s and their executive teams, he has also actually been Chairman, CEO and MD of blue chip businesses.

He speaks with the authority and confidence of the expert practitioner who has seen and experienced it all before. He is the best-selling author of the leadership and culture bible, “Corporate Voodoo”, and has had the privilege of working closely with some of the world’s best leaders, from former US President Bill Clinton to CEOs of blue chip businesses, including Jim Yong Kim at The World Bank, Ralph Hamers at ING Bank, Mario Greco at Generali and Maria Ramos at Barclays Africa. He has interviewed the good and the great including Jack Welch, Allan Leighton, Lou Gerstner, and Sir Richard Branson. His latest book and audiobook , SPIKE is the product of some 30 years of supporting the growth and development of individuals and businesses of all shapes and sizes in the UK and overseas. The book brings together a proven formula for personal and business development.

“René was instrumental in leading the organization’s global HR team through a change process in which they not only saw a new vision for their work, but really felt it at deep visceral level.” Google
