Leo focuses on the future of work in the realms of public policy and political science. His field of particular expertise lies in how learning new skills can serve as a panacea for our modern ills: growing inequality, worries about automation, and political polarisation. He is also interested in how leadership, finance, and political systems influence the paths that countries adopt when it comes to these major decisions — and he believes that they are decisions, rather than inevitabilities. More broadly, he is interested in how societies can be reformed to deliver Empowered Belonging: sustainable fulfilment and prosperity for all. Beyond that, Leo is chair and co-founder of the charity UniReach, which supports disadvantaged university applicants in the UK, and currently works at Egon Zehnder, the leadership advisory firm. He studied at the University of Oxford, where he graduated with a First class degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Leo is an expert on the future of work and interviews authors writing about and researching public policy and political economy, particularly about labour markets, technological change, skills, and welfare – and how societies can be reformed to deliver Empowered Belonging: sustainable fulfilment and prosperity for all.
