Our 6 business leaders will case study how their businesses have engaged major stakeholder groups internally to implement flexible and hybrid working practices as we emerge from the pandemic.

Working life will be different, but what and how will it look?

Marisa’s biography

Who am I

I am an energised, challenging, tenacious and empowering woman with fifteen years’ talent acquisition experience in both consulting and leadership roles.

After establishing a market-leading practice placing senior tax executives with multinational businesses across the EMEA region, I went on to join an Executive Search firm where I placed senior commercial and operational roles within the Energy & Utilities sectors. Prior to joining PwC I specialised in placing middle to senior leadership roles for a small range of IT Consulting companies.

Currently, I lead the Flexible Careers Network which is part of PwC’s Total Talent approach in driving inclusive recruitment. I also bring to life the Inclusion & Diversity agenda for the recruitment team to support the business in achieving its goals through the creation of innovative and creative sourcing strategies for all mid-senior hires at PwC.

Outside of the office

Becoming a trained  Health Coach I have the tools to create the right recipe for my happiness. I recharge by doing Zumba, clubbercise, yoga and meditation and surround myself with positivity, laughter and kindness. I also love to cook and have a kitchen cupboard full of gadgets!
