Change Makers: Margarete McGrath, Dayne Turbitt, Natalie Campbell
Two of the UK’s top technologists, Dayne Turbitt, Senior Vice-President and UK General Manager, and Margarete McGrath, Chief Digital Officer of Dell Technologies UK, join Michael Hayman in this week’s Change Makers. As the country moves from lockdown into recovery and organisations return to the workplace, Dayne and Margarete share their thoughts on how COVID-19 has accelerated digitisation and remote working and what that means for the future, as well as looking at the opportunities for technology to drive human progress.
As a Senior Vice President of Dell EMC’s Enterprise Sales Division, Dayne Turbitt is responsible for leading the transformation of the UK and Ireland organisation into a company that is dedicated to helping its Enterprise customers achieve success and to be leaders in their industry. Margarete McGrath works with a diverse group of Dell Technologies clients to support them with their digital and security transformations. She is a champion of diversity in digital and a strong advocate of STEM, a big believer in female entrepreneurship and green technology, and an advocate of Mental Health and Wellbeing in Dell.
Natalie Campbell, the new CEO of Belu Water, the social enterprise water brand that donates 100% of its profits to WaterAid, joins Michael in this edition of Change Makers. Natalie took over the role in March this year, and talks about how she adapted to taking on a new role as lockdown began and the experience of meeting her team virtually. She also looks back on her career so far that has seen her hold her “dream jobs” with some of the UK’s most exciting purpose-driven organisations.
Natalie Campbell was appointed CEO of Belu Water in 2020. She is an award-winning social entrepreneur and HarperCollins author. She is co-founder of A Very Good Company, a global social innovation agency that has worked with brands like Virgin Media, Marks & Spencer, W Hotels, the Guardian and Channel 4.
