Wipro’s Thierry Delaporte: Connecting as a remote CEO during COVID-19
Play • 18 min
Starting remote as CEO during COVID-19 meant reshaping the firm’s operations -- and building trust with thousands -- mostly over Zoom. In fact, it was more than a year before Thierry Delaporte could meet many of his teams in person thanks to travel restrictions. Delaporte talked to Meet The Leader about starting in Paris as a remote CEO and Managing Director for this India-headquartered company (with staff around the world) and how he focused his communication to build connections and help simplify the company’s operations. He also explained how a favorite hobby -- sailing -- prepared him to navigate COVID's uncertainty and how those lessons could help any leader.
