The Meet the Leader podcast was launched 6 months ago, with one-on-one conversations with some of the top leaders around the world. In each of these fortnightly episodes, leaders talk about how they're finding solutions to the world's biggest problems, as well as how they approach their roles and days, revealing the habits and approaches that they can't work without.
This compilation episode includes advice shared by leaders on this podcast and at World Economic Forum events such as the Pioneers of Change Summit and the Annual Meeting in Davos.

Marian Croak, head of responsible AI at Google. This innovator holds hundreds of patents and her work developing Voice over IP helped laid the foundation for the technologies that powered the remote work we've done over the pandemic. It also allowed for Meet the Leader and all of the World Economic Forum podcasts to be recorded remotely this past year. She told our Pioneers of Tech Summit how she continues to think innovatively - and how she finds unique solutions to problems.
