Lucy Marcus
"Expert on Global Economic Trends, Venture Capital and Technology"
Expertise: Finance • Leadership • Technology • Women’s Issues
Fee Range: $10,000 to $15,000
Location: London England
Selected in 2002 as one of the World Economic Forum's Global Leaders for Tomorrow, Lucy Marcus represents a new generation of global decision-makers from business, government, politics and civil society who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in areas as diverse as society, the environment, finance, technology and social responsibility in business

Lucy P. Marcus is a businesswoman for the 21st Century: an outspoken maverick with an impressive career path, who has been earmarked as a "face to watch" by Management Today in their most recent rundown of Britain 's 50 Most Powerful Women. Recently the World Economic Forum selected her as a 'Global Leader for Tomorrow' ; a prestigious accolade that is bestowed on 'new generation' global decision-makers from business, political and intellectual arenas.
Business Age concurs, naming Lucy as 'one of the 10 women changing the direction of British business'. In fact, Lucy's wide range of experience and her 360º perspective on business issues have seen her published and quoted in an array of journals, from the FT to the Wall Street Journal to Newsweek.

Following stints in government, software and the internet, Lucy set up Marcus Venture Consulting in 1999. Aiming to help investment firms become 'smart money' in an increasingly cut-throat climate, she flew in the face of the received wisdom of the time, which suggested VCs didn't want, or even need advice. As the spectacular bursting of the dot-com bubble and its continuing aftershocks have unequivocally proved though, straight-talkers like Lucy were in fact bang on the money all along.

In March 2000 Lucy founded HighTech Women, an on and off line mentoring and meeting place for women in technology related businesses. The forum boasts over 2,000 members worldwide. Proof positive of Lucy's belief that: HighTech Women was something that had to be done.

Lucy also sits on several boards, among them Cambridge University Business School's the Judge Institute of Management Studies Advisory Board and the Advisory Board of the Asian University for Women.

A gifted and memorable presenter, Lucy's "go-ahead", open style inspires and enlightens in equal measure. She speaks with authority, clarity and experience on a wealth of topics, such as Women in Business, Entrepreneurship and Leadership to name but a few. Whatever she's addressing though, one philosophy underpins her message: get to the roots of an issue, understand it and find ways to deal
with it.

Simply put, the Lucy Marcus take on business is one that audiences not only respect, but one they can also act upon.

Topics:
  • Globalisation and consolidation in Europe
  • Building strong businesses in uncertain times
  • Competing in the new capital markets
  • Return on investment with e-strategy
  • Private equity in a changing landscape
