Heather Anne Hubbell

I'm passionate about enabling and driving strategic business transformation, particularly using digital tools, processes and applications to increase efficiency. I work with clients ranging from digital start-ups and small and medium size enterprises to global financial institutions. I believe in focused collaboration and troubleshooting, ensuring the end result is fully understood and embedded in your organisation.

I’ve got an extensive record of transformation within Financial Services, in areas spanning corporate governance, risk efficiency and strategic planning and over the past several years I’ve focused on helping clients leveraging digital technologies for their transformations.

I’m currently also part of a team in a fintech which is developing a disruptive way to enable financial capital markets to work

My background as a business owner, lawyer, banker, risk manager and digital transformation expert give me a unique insight and understanding of how business works, resulting in a focused and strategic approach with my clients.
