17.2 Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia, CEO
Do you bring your true self to the table? Viv Groskop talks to CEO Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Founder and Executive Chair of the fintech Snoop. She was the CEO of Virgin Money from 2007 to 2018, working closely with Richard Branson, and was often the only woman in a man’s world. Jayne-Anne discusses how she owns the room - sometimes using her full height to command authority - and sometimes showing openness and abandoning notes to connect with an audience. She asks what is true diversity? And discusses challenges with depression, including a recent revelation that has worked for her in treating it.
A new updated edition of Viv's book, How to Own the Room is out now.
