About Joe Zammit-Lucia
Artist, author, commentator and leadership advisor. Intersectionist. Compulsive contrarian. “I take seriously Lyotard’s idea of finding ways to resist the complacent certainties of the expert”.
Dr Joseph Zammit-Lucia works at the intersection of many disciplines to address broad socio-political-environmental issues and their impact on the success of businesses, organizations and institutions. As a senior leadership advisor, he works with business and institutional leaders to explore the implications of a rapidly evolving, chaotic socio-cultural environment on organizational strategy and operational effectiveness. “Our contemporary culture is such that leaders are operating in a social environment that can seem chaotic, unpredictable and sometimes downright irrational. Those businesses and institutions that can build a leadership culture that thrives in this chaos are finding themselves forging ahead of everyone else.”
Previously a business leader and entrepreneur who founded what became a market leading international firm, he is now a frequent public speaker in academic and non-academic forums. He authors papers and commentaries on a broad range of issues relating to society, growth and sustainability and is a writer in venues such as Guardian Sustainable Business (UK), the Stanford Social Innovation Review (USA) and Het Financieele Dagblad (Netherlands). As an advisor, he has worked with senior business leaders in a number of the leading multinational corporations. He has been frequently quoted in the leading business press including The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, The Economist, The New York Times and others.
He is the President of WOLFoundation.org – a “factory of ideas that encourages broad dialogue on society, business and environmental issues.” He is a member of the Dean’s Board of Leadership Advisors at the College of Arts and Sciences, Florida International University, has served as Special Advisor to the Director General at the International Union for Conservation of Nature and serves on the board of non-profit organizations. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
