Laura Hewitt

Transformation Lead

What do you do at &us?

I wear lots of different hats, from coaching leaders and teams to work better together to crack their biggest challenges to supporting the brilliant internal team that I lead to do their best work. I also love contributing to the growth and future of &us – we are proud to have a culture which is truly unique and I spend a lot of time learning and absorbing as much as I can from the amazing people around me.

What do you care about most in your work?

That the people I work with feel they can experiment, challenge and make things better. Organisations are full of people who have a massive amount of potential but are held back by unnecessary limitations – the job is to get out of our own way.

What did you do prior to &us?

I’ve trained people in large organisations on how to apply design thinking, I’ve created new mass fundraising products for some of the top UK charities and I’ve consulted with small businesses on culture and innovation briefs.

When not at work…

I love going to art exhibitions to nurture my passion for painting. I am the happiest when swimming, reading great fiction or having Miso in my local Japanese cafe.

Talk to me about…

How you cook your eggs (I enjoy improving my technique).
