On Friday, 29th January, Adoreum held its first Thought Leadership breakfast of 2016 at the idyllic South Kensington Club.
We were very fortunate to have Diana Noble, the chief executive of the CDC, to speak to about the diversified career paths our generation experience today. Drawing from her own transition to the public arena from an illustrious career in the private equity sector, Diana gave our guests valuable insights into the challenges and rewards within the public sector.
After her speech, the breakfast quickly opened up into an inspiring conversation for all our attendees. A huge thanks to The South Kensington Club who prepared an extremely delicious, yet guilt free breakfast.
Diana was appointed CDC’s Chief Executive in 2011. Her background is in private equity, venture capital and international development. She was a partner at Schroder Ventures (now Permira) for 12 years, founder CEO of e-Ventures and founder Managing Director of Reed Elsevier Ventures. Diana joined CDC after 5 years with the Clinton Foundation’s Health Access Initiative, where she took a number of roles, including Executive Vice President Operations. In this role, she was responsible for 43 countries and 5 global teams and oversaw the scale-up of a global programme to improve children’s access to HIV/AIDS treatment. CDC supports the building of businesses throughout Africa and South Asia to create jobs and make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world’s poorest places.
