As a Cultural Architect, Javier helps organisations and cities change old habits, allowing their strategies to work.

In 1998 Javier, who started out at Accenture, became the Founding CEO of The Talent Foundation, the international network of businesses and academia created to find concrete answers to the challenge of unlocking Human Talent in a limited timeframe.
He went on to cofound WFP to develop practical applications around those findings, and Project Red Stripe for The Economist.
Javier holds a PhD in the area of Behavioural Change and an MSc in Neurosciences.
