Julia Lindsay, Managing Director of iOpener and its sister business, the iOpener Institute for People and Performance, believes that the best measure of business success is delivering - both numbers and objectives. And that only happens when everyone is totally engaged with their mission, their team and their tasks. In other words when they are highly skilled at what they do.
During the 15 years she spent working at senior and executive level in the financial services industry she led teams in financial management and control, operations and change management. The key to her early success was realizing that a strong people-focus would deliver global results and greatly impact the wider business too.
Julia’s professional training as an accountant means she has a strongly commercial approach to everything she does. Julia has worked for Royal Bank of Scotland Financial Markets, NatWest markets and Bankers Trust.
She lives near Northampton UK with her family
