Russell specializes in helping individuals and companies navigate sabbaticals – from corporate policy design to individuals requesting, transitioning, and returning from extended leave.
Spending half of his time as a management consultant and half as a performing artist, Russell believes wholeheartedly in the power of sabbaticals and in alternative working structures.
In his corporate work, he specializes in growth and digital transformations, especially focused on the impact of talent and training on the sustainability of long-term implementation. As an artist, Russell seeks to tell stories across several media, including classical piano, contemporary dance, and aerial circus arts.
Having personally benefited from sabbatical and flexible working policies in his own career, Russell is passionate about applying experience design principles to build customized working strategies for corporate environments. He has experience in strategizing and implementing talent initiatives across several clients, both through his work as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company and as an independent consultant.
