Biography

Dr Noreena Hertz career started in St Petersburg, where she helped establish the city’s stock exchange and tutored Yeltsin’s advisors in market economics. After a period as a consultant at the World Bank, she turned her attention to the Middle East, heading a team of researchers exploring the role of the private sector in the peace process.  Her first book, ‘The Silent Takeover’, charted the shortcomings of the Thatcher-Reagan economic model, showing how the balance of power shifted radically from politics to commerce.

She presents a case for a new business environment, in which transparency and accountability matter more to employees and customers alike.
