What if and why not? Airbus’ Louise Kyle Triolo set to enlighten 4YFN19 about Intrapreneurialism

We are delighted to announce that we are joined at 4YFN this year by Louise Kyhl Triolo. Louise oversees arguably one of the boldest corporate innovation initiatives at Airbus. But Louise’s role hasn’t been about being the brightest aeronautical physicist in the room, it has been all about mobilizing the awesome brainpower of Airbus’ best and instilling a sense of entrepreneurialism in one of the world’s most important engines for change.

Here Louise tells us about the culture of change and how large organisations can lead the charge – not just respond to it.

What are you talking about at the conference?

The cultural evolution journey that Airbus has begun to accelerate our transformation and drive real action to boost the intrapreneurial spirit.

What are you passionate about?

Creating and doing things that matter, that have a positive impact on people’s lives, work and future – bringing a smile to people’s faces.

What is the future of your field?

The Chief Intrapreneurial officer- the architect of an intrapreneurial cultural space. The Macro facilitators and connectors of ideas, people and organisational vision and purpose.

Why is it so important?

Constant change is the new constant! – the speed of change is so rapid that organisations need to create new opportunities instead of waiting for them. New opportunities that can lead to new growth and in the process that is what people want: to learn and explore.

What are your favourite sayings (they can be your own)? Words to live by?

Keep smiling,

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it is all that ever has.” – Margaret Meads
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

What does the world look like in 50-100 years?

Hopefully the exact opposite of Blade Runner 2! I hope it will be a place where technology serves humanity, and where people live in a physical/cultural space that empowers them to be creative and define their own dignified existence. A world where organisations are true enablers of development at every level: social, personal, professional and economic

Where will you be four years from now?

At the cutting edge of a job that probably doesn’t exist today.
