Medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières is known throughout the world for its efforts to bring specialist help to people in parts of the world ravaged by conflict and disaster. Theirs is a tremendous challenge: achieving meaningful outcomes in environments characterised by chaos and disorder.
Vickie Hawkins is executive director of MSF UK. She gives us an insight into how the organisation maintains its ability to turn up at short notice and make a real difference – quickly. Drawing from her experiences in China, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, coupled with her recent directorship in the UK, Vickie helps us understand how bold leadership, solid focus and robust ways of working lead to results that truly change people’s lives.
