Vittorio Colao, head of the Italian COVID-19 Taskforce, discussed the intersection of corporate leadership, government and social purpose in this interview.


Accelerating Execution and Opportunity Through Leadership

Vittorio Colao is head of the Italian Covid-19 Taskforce, Board Director, Unilever plc, Board Director, Verizon Communications Inc., and is also a Senior Advisor, General Atlantic. 

In our #PivottoProgress series we interview key leaders from mission-critical, digitally-enabled industries across all sectors in Europe, as they discuss how they are actively “pivoting to progress” throughout the Covid-19 curve. From them, we heard of substantial changes occurring along four key themes: Technology, Organisational Effectiveness, Guidance & Governance, and New Bets. 

In this video, Vittorio speaks to David Mills, Managing Director at Russell Reynolds Associates, about the intersection of corporate leadership, governments, and social purpose. 

The interviews in this series informed the content of our study, “The European Voice from the Top: Six Covid-Era Leadership Imperatives to #PivotToProgress,” in which we gain a better understanding of what will be required of leaders in the coming years.
