    Larry Yu's podcast interview about thought leadership.

    Thought leadership.

    I geek out on thought leadership. I co-founded the thought leadership consultancy Kite Global Advisors and I'm managing editor of the Milken Institute Review. I was executive editor of strategy+business, and contributor/ghost-writer of Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review articles, consulting firm reports and business books.


    My personal interests are also a professional focus. I track climate change and sustainability, governance, geopolitics, development, leadership, risk management and responsible business practices. And movies. Definitely movies.

    Larry Yu developed briefings for the World Economic Forum at Davos


    I bring together different disciplines and sectors for things that need to happen. Like think tank fellows, data analysts and graphic designers working on World Economic Forum briefings. Or climate activists, NGOs and city government working on hyper-local climate action plans.
