Liz has dedicated her career to bringing positive change through leadership, coaching and mentoring.

She channelled her initial 16 years of corporate experience – at KPMG, HSBC (Global Head of Coaching) and GP Strategies (Managing Partner) – into founding and running social impact organisation Moving Ahead in 2014. Liz became the first woman to cycle the entire route of the Tour de France in 2012 – strengthening her deeply held belief that diversity and equality benefits women, men, business and society – and Moving Ahead’s mission is to revolutionise the world’s workplaces to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive. Liz was awarded Queen’s honours in 2019 for services to gender equality.
