She has 17 years' experience leading and influencing transformations as a practitioner and consultant for Fortune 500 clients in consumer, technology, industrial, and disruptive innovation in end-to-end process and product design.

"I’m a rebel ," she says. "I'm also an eternal student who loves bringing out the best in people. I've made a career simplifying the complex, rethinking supply chain strategy and customer experience."

Hinish also hosts a top podcast called Supply Chain Revolution. that evangelises the future of supply chain. "My vision is to change the world through shared purpose and sustainable supply chain, circularity, and building technology grounded in the principles of sustainable development," she says.
