Description

Business Leaders Lunch – Reflections on 29 years at American Express

Beverly Sawyers leads the Operational Excellence function for American Express across 150+ countries around the world. She has a global team and spends around a quarter of her time travelling across the world. She is also responsible for managing the American Express sponsorship of American Express Community Stadium, Training Ground, Football Shirts and Albion in the Community ‘Realise the Potential’ community program – in her words, ‘not really a job as I am a super-passionate Brighton & Hove Albion fan’.

Outside of work she is a Trustee on the Board of Rise Charity, and has just started working with Better Brighton and Hove initiative, sponsored by Brighton Council and the Pebble Trust, as well as being mother of Rosa (19) and Billy (22). Any spare time is filled with gym, yoga and baking cakes.

Beverly will share her reflections of working in one company for 29 years, working with teams, peers and stakeholders across many countries and cultures. She will share why and how she kept Brighton as her base, about being a women leader and balancing competing priorities, and her simple philosophy about authenticity and being true to oneself. She prefers interactive meetings, so please do come with questions and perspectives!

Join us for a delicious two course meal and a glass of wine at the Grand Hotel to hear Beverly's fascinating business journey.
