Some of the key topics Anne and I discuss include:

  1. How does a woman manage her career path in an industry that is both European and male-dominated? As a woman who spent 14 years as an executive at three banks, I particularly enjoyed listening to Anne's story and experienced many of the same challenges she has been able to overcome.
  1. Anne has a deep interest in the innovations taking place in our food chain, as does Rabobank. Together Anne and I dig into these emerging breakthroughs and the talented entrepreneurs who are pushing them forward.
  1. We talk about changing the culture of organizationsThis is a major challenge for all companies today. The way we always did things might not work in this ever-changing world coming out of the pandemic period. But what will work and how do we help create it?

Listen in and share your thoughts.
