Who is Lucinda Carney?
Our CEO, Lucinda Carney, is a Chartered Psychologist and former Head of Learning & Development at Siemens and at Pfizer before that. This corporate HR experience meant that Lucinda has personally experienced the challenges of making Performance Management meaningful, especially when working with clunky HR or paper-based performance management systems. Actus emerged back in 2009 from this experience and has evolved to become the complete Performance, Learning and Talent Suite that we know today, used by over 70,000 people across the globe.
Influential Thought Leader
Lucinda is considered a thought leader in a range of people management and change-related business topics and has used her expertise to support organisations in adapting to remote/hybrid working. An accomplished Coach, Consultant and Speaker, she was named ‘Everywoman Tech Entrepreneur of the Year in 2016’, ‘Winner of one of the UK’s top 10 Women in Business 2020’ by Business Gamechanger magazine and one of the ‘Top 32 Female Tech Leaders in 2021’ by Business Leader. She is also the author of the best-selling book: ‘How to be a Change Superhero’ and the host of the No.1 ranking HR podcast ‘The HR Uprising Podcast’.
Building a Better Workplace
Lucinda is passionate about driving the Actus vision to ‘Build a better workplace for people.’ This is reflected in the value-added services we offer at Actus, including bespoke consultancy and training facilitated by Lucinda and a selection of expert consultants. It is also demonstrated in the cutting-edge thought leadership and value-added resources that Lucinda shares to deliver value to people professionals everywhere, whether Actus clients or otherwise.
