I HELP YOU BROADEN YOUR PERSPECTIVE SO THAT YOU CAN MAKE SMARTER, MORE INFORMED DECISIONS
As an executive coach, moderator, advisor and geopolitical expert, my role is to help you understand what matters most to you and your organisation and to navigate challenging transitions with confidence.
"Xenia is consistently impressive. Her professionalism, deep knowledge of the international political environment and clear-sighted and perceptive views have proved invaluable.”
Lord Robertson, former NATO Secretary General
During a lengthy career in geopolitics and international strategy I’ve seen first-hand the consequences of good and bad decision-making in high-stake situations.
WHERE I'VE BEEN
In the White House, I led on South Asia policy and helped set up Homeland Security after 9/11. I ran Harvard’s pre-eminent international affairs research centre and launched both the PeaceNexus foundation and Chatham House’s Academy for Leadership. Most recently, I sat on Equinor’s Global Strategy and Business Development management team and led its Geopolitics and Integrity Due Diligence teams.
WHERE I'M GOING
Today, I run my own business, Wickett Advisory, where I gain great satisfaction from using my experience to help leaders broaden their thinking, understanding and perspective. Whether addressing their own leadership, global geopolitics and/or political and ESG dynamics, I help them gain clarity on the challenges they face and the solutions they may choose.
HOW I WORK
My work falls into three broad categories, which can be combined to fit a client’s specific requirements:
Executive coaching: being a sounding board, critical friend or partner to help leaders chart their path to success for themselves and their organisations.
Geopolitical speaking and advice: providing a robust geopolitical foundation on which to build business strategies.
Chairing & moderating: facilitating open conversations that offer fresh insights and lasting impact.
If I can help you deliver direction and impact, or create powerful conversations, please do get in touch.
"The range and quality of Xenia’s experience are extraordinary. When you combine these with her judgement, humility and emotional intelligence, you can be sure that the perspective she offers will help join your dots in new and imaginative ways."
