Media Coverage 11th March 2020 1 minute read
Raj Tulsiani, entrepreneur, author and one of the UK’s leading figures in executive search, interim management, workforce planning and diversification, founded Green Park alongside Steve Baggi in 2006. At the time of Green Park’s inception, there were no recruitment firms dedicated to tackling executive diversity. The solution? Create your own! Thus, Green Park was born.
Fourteen Years later, Green Park are listed by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies and are the only recruitment company to make the Sunday Times & Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 index, listing the Britain’s fastest growing privately owned companies. A passionate advocate of the power of diversity as a source of competitive advantage, Raj Tulsiani leads a team that sets the benchmark for innovation and commitment to consistently attracting and retaining diverse groups of appointable leadership candidates.
As one of the most respected and disruptive figures internationally in these fields, Raj advises boards and change agents across the public and private sectors and sits on a number of boards. With over 20 years of experience moving the dial on leadership, talent and diversity, Raj has now published his debut book, Diversity & Inclusion for Leaders: Making a Difference with the Diversity Headhunter, a provocative but practical approach to achieving sustainable change in diversity and inclusion.
Diversity and Inclusion for Leaders, presents a compelling case for the commercial value of diversity and inclusion that goes beyond the moral issues. It gives readers a comprehensive understanding of the issues and provides an actionable framework on how to not only master diversity and inclusion, but also how to profit from it.
