Philippa White

Founder & CEO

Philippa is the Founder and CEO of TIE. She was born in South Africa, grew up in Canada, and spent a short time in Thailand before being fostered by Mother England. After a fantastic 5 years working in prolific London agencies such as Leo Burnett and BBH, she exited the industry to develop TIE and moved to Brazil. Philippa has always believed in the power of the private sector and leadership to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. TIE was launched in 2006 with a simple mission: to unleash the full potential of future leaders through self-discovery and experiential learning, and to make a difference to communities and people around the world. Since then, TIE has been developing the leaders of tomorrow, shaping the future of business and providing people and companies around the world with an opportunity to feel proud of their profession and the skills they have worked so hard to develop. Philippa knows how to tackle complex social problems through leadership development, understands collaborative working and how to develop people to lead on their own terms. Philippa lives in Brazil with her family. When not at home with her two little girls and surrounded by the sounds of frevo, maracatu, capoeira or people playing football in the square beside her house, she loves to travel to the UK and US for business, or to remote destinations with her family on holiday.
