Following the first three 'in the green room' episodes featuring BT’s Gabrielle Ginér, Carillion's David Picton and LandSec’s Sarah Beattie, edie embraces the holiday season for a chat with Kate Gibson, vice president for global corporate responsibility at hotel group IHG.
During the conversation, Gibson discusses how IHG’s corporate strategy is becoming a hot topic for conversation amongst her family, and how the company has accounted for regional – and even hotel-specific – factors to drive efficiencies across its facilities.
The chat concludes with Gibson discussing the importance of human rights within the supply chain, but she also discusses what skills will become influential to thrive in the low-carbon transition in the future. Be sure to listen to her views on how balancing data insights with storytelling is becoming an integral part of her everyday life.
