She helped the Board and top leadership to establish and execute the people transformation strategy, including reinventing major people processes.

As the Enterprise Head of Talent, Learning & Org Effectiveness for a global consumer products company Mandy led the efforts to create a unified transformation strategy focused on speeding up the pace of innovation. Her team drove a multi-disciplinary initiative to build an Innovation DNA by creating a completely new talent and learning strategy based on user-centric design principles.
The two main tenets of her work are purpose and change. Helping organizations to be grounded in their purpose, and helping leaders dare to be authentic and lead from purpose so that they bring out the best in themselves and others. And change; building capabilities that position the organization to innovate, respond with agility and stay a step ahead.
