When it comes to driving innovation, Sharon MacLeod is an expert. The Unilever VP of Personal Care in North America was named as one of Canada's Most Powerful Women by WXN (Women's Executive Network).

When it comes to motivating a team, curiosity (especially about people) is a killer strategy. Naming New York City, Los Angeles and Shanghai as cities ahead of the curve, MacLeod says the key to being better than competitors in finding insights through curiosity and investing. As the pace of change in our world is faster than ever, and will only get faster, companies have to move quickly.

Driving innovation is not just about valuing and prioritizing it, but celebrating people who live the innovative culture in their day to day work. Young talent in particular are fostering innovation and bringing a fresh perspective to the workforce.
