Annette Kirby

Facilitator

I work as a coach at The Leadership Institute providing leadership guidance to Majid Al Futtaim. I also work with other leaders around the world, and offer guidance for the MBA at INSEAD Business School. I am also a facilitator of transformation at McKinsey-Aberkyn.

My first career was in maternal infant health and pharmaceuticals, where I had the great honour of leading the clinical trial of the first ever cancer-preventing vaccine approved by the FDA. The vaccine is now administered globally. I then spent 13 years working with leaders from the oil/gas, construction, telecommunications, hospitality, security, private equity, law, FMCG, defense, security, and retail sectors.

Working with The Leadership Institute has given me the opportunity, to connect with extraordinary talent, and to live my purpose of growing great leaders. I am inspired by facilitating executives’ discovery of personal intent and purpose in leadership. I believe that leadership and compassion are inseparable, and it excites me when people come to the same realisation.
