Meet Lorna Davis, our Champions Retreat 2020 keynote speaker


Lorna Davis transforms the way leaders operate so that they can incorporate social, environmental and financial priorities into their business performance. Lorna is a Global Ambassador for the B Corp movement, and we’re thrilled to have her joining us at Champions Retreat 2020!


Lorna inspires, coaches and provokes leaders to use business as a force for good. She runs group workshops, coaches individuals and is a highly sought after keynote speaker. She also serves on the board of a number of organisations that are committed to having meaningful purpose., including Seventh Generation, Radical Impact, Sir Kensington and Stone Barns Centre for Food and Agriculture.


Lorna has served as President of multinational consumer goods companies for 20+ years, in Danone, Kraft and Mondelez. Lorna has been a key leader in Danone’s purpose journey. In 2017, she served as CEO and Chairwoman of Danone Wave (now Danone North America), where she established that $6 Billion entity as a Public Benefit Corporation and achieved B Corp status in 2018, making it the largest B Corp in the world at the time.


A true global citizen, she has lived and led businesses in 7 countries including the UK, France and the USA.

Lorna was based in Shanghai, China for 6 years where she was the CEO of the merged Danone and Kraft business. Lorna now lives in New York City where she runs Lorna Davis and Associates, working as a coach, speaker and facilitator. Lorna is passionate about wildlife conservation, particularly the plight of the African rhino.


In this insightful TED talk, Lorna Davis explains how our idolisation of heroes is holding us back from solving big problems -- and shows why we need "radical interdependence" to make real change happen.
