Davina Glen



“Good Purpose powers both the rational mind and the soul.” 

Davina is an Innovation, Growth Strategy and Insights specialist whose experience spans over a decade of in-house and consultancy roles. 

Sector expertise includes Financial Services, Media and Consumer Goods. She has helped organisations such as Bauer Media, RBS and Boots understand, anticipate and leverage customer trends and disruptive market developments and thereby grow.

Endlessly curious about what drives people, organisations, and markets to behave as they do, Davina gets a thrill out of uncovering hidden motivations, unexplored value levers and developing better ways of doing things. 

Growing up as a ‘third culture kid’ in socially divided Rio de Janeiro instilled in her an intrinsic ability to inhabit different cultures and mindsets: “the simultaneous benefits of an insider’s intimate understanding alongside an outsider’s capacity to propose a different perspective”. 

A current inspiration is ‘Pad Man’ Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu fighting period poverty and empowering women in India. 

Davina is a native bilingual speaker of Brazilian Portuguese and English and holds a Masters degree in International Relations from Durham University.
