  • Ayelet re-defines what collaboration is and means. She’s got extraordinary vision, energy, and willingness and ability to share, and ‘a bias for action’ to achieve outcomes. Ayelet also has constructed a phenomenal network of thought leadership across organizations and sectors which she leverages – to mutual satisfaction of all parties – to achieve those outcomes. She also has an innate ability to assimilate and extrapolate that thought leadership and reform it into actionable innovation. Ayelet is one of those on the short list with whom it’s a sincere privilege – and learning opportunity – to work with.
