Philippa White
CEO & Founder
The International Exchange

Philippa is the Founder and CEO of The International Exchange (TIE). She is driven by the belief that when professionals fully engage with their humanity, ingenuity and purpose, good things start to happen. TIE is a CPD accredited leadership development programme that creates conscious leaders who are shaping the future of their industries and companies. Through the simple means of disrupting comfort zones, TIE exposes people to global challenges, and creates the space for them to find their distinctive power to make meaningful change. Philippa believes that to profoundly change the world, we need people to connect with their potential. In her mind, where we were is very different to where we are going. By helping people discover more about themselves and what their distinctive power is, her ultimate aim is to help create better people, with better companies, in a better world. Philippa is a global citizen, having been born in South Africa, grew up in Canada, studied in Thailand, and worked in advertising in the United Kingdom. In 2005 Philippa moved to Brazil and launched TIE. Philippa is 44 years old and still lives in Brazil with her 7 and 11-year-old daughters. They spend weekends hanging out in the Atlantic rainforest and exploring local beaches. She also loves spending time with her partner at his small shipyard as he finishes creating his new class of sailing vessel.
