About the speaker

Changing WORK means changing the world.

Only 57% of employees in Europe are engaged in their work. Heidi Gutekunst sees a huge potential in changing it. In order to make a change, both changing outdated structures and developing better leadership capacities play a big role.

When Heidi Gutekunst worked as a CEO she did not have any formal leadership education. Her decisions were made by listening into the moments and acting out of intuition. Years later she heard about transforming leadership and found a framework for her thinking.

This inspired her to found a social enterprise, Amara Collaboration, together with three other people, from Lithuania, the UK and USA. Their vision is to double the amount of leaders with transformational capacity worldwide in 25 years.
