Purposeful Careers Podcast

Over the coming weeks we will be talking to senior managers who have made some bold choices to repurpose their careers towards making an impact on the world's greatest problems. 

Episode 3 - Soulla Kyriacou, Blueprint for Better Business 

In this episode we talk to Soulla Kyriacou, Chief Operating Officer at Blueprint for Better Business, an independent charity whose goal is to inspire businesses to think differently about their purpose, working with the senior leadership teams of large companies to help create the right environment for purposeful businesses to thrive.

Soulla joined Blueprint in December 2012 and together with their CEO Charles Wookey, has helped to grow Blueprint from an initiative that was launched with a conference looking at how corporate purpose and personal values could be united to serve society, to an independent charity that is engaged with a growing number of major global companies.

As well as overseeing the operations of Blueprint, Soulla runs workshops for teams in large corporates, manages a network of coaches and consultants to business and leads a number of other projects.

Soulla is a trained coach who was previously a director at KPMG. Initially a tax professional, having previously worked for the Inland Revenue, her 20 year career at KPMG changed course following a 4 year secondment to KPMG’s International Headquarters in Amsterdam, when she moved into a series of management roles including working with KPMG’s Client Service Board, working with the UK Head of Tax and with the Global CEO to help implement change projects across KPMG worldwide.

In this episode of the Purposeful Careers Podcast, Soulla kindly shares her story and gives some tips on how to repurpose your own career to help your company make an impact on the things that really matter.
