In the latest episode of the No Limitations podcast, “Forward with Courage and Curiosity”, Blenheim Partners’ Gregory Robinson speaks to John Lydon, former Managing Partner, Australia and New Zealand of McKinsey & Company. He is currently a Senior Partner of the firm.

We are treated to some fascinating stories from John’s distinguished career, hailing from the quiet and peaceful county of Lincolnshire to traversing the world, advising clients on decisions that impact communities and the greater society, to ultimately leading McKinsey & Company in Australia and New Zealand. Following his term as Managing Partner, John took a sabbatical to truly explore how businesses can create more value for all stakeholders and society. Today, he shares with us his key learnings and reveals how true commitment to ESG, social impact and purpose can positively influence not only a business’s bottom line but also the future of the world and generations to come.

During John’s tenure at McKinsey & Company, the Australia and New Zealand practice grew three-fold to over 450 consultants. He also founded McKinsey Implementation globally. John is Chairman of Generation Australia, Co-Chair of the Australian Climate Leaders Coalition and a member of the University of Technology Sydney’s Vice Chancellor’s Advisory Board.
