COP 26 Project Manager , CBI
A strategy consultant, Viv specialises in implementing strategic transformation and change across all levels of organisation, whilst assisting public and private sector entities to realise net zero ambitions.
Currently the CBI's COP26 Manager, he is responsible for ensuring coherence and coordination of the campaign, highlighting and showcasing the importance of the private sector in achieving local, national and global net zero targets.
Closely aligned to this strategy is the Goal 13 Impact Platform (which Viv also manages), which is a free and open repository of climate action amongst business. It is an initiative led by 6 partner organisations (CBI, A4S, Chapter Zero, the Met Office, Dell Technologies and Deloitte).
Prior to his move into the private sector, Viv served 14 years in the Royal Navy, delivering to a breadth of roles whilst leading strong performing and diverse teams to develop global strategies, and design organisational structures, governance mechanisms and operating models against strategic objectives, and within dynamic operating environments.
