Barbro Dahlbom-Hall is a well known Swedish leadership guru who has conducted leadership development programmes for women for more than 40 years. Barbro has been arranging leadership programmes for women in the United Nations over many years and also worked for big companies and organisations like Electrolux and Swedish Kommune Forbundet. I had the pleasure to attend one of Barbro programmes a few years back and since then she has also been my professional mentor. There is no doubt that she is my big inspirator and it is indeed a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with and learn from such an experienced leader. I will adapt her approach and methodology to Half the World’s senior leadership programme.
