Alanna started her first company at the age of 15, graduated from a top 10 university in the United States, worked for the government of Japan, and lead a team at Bloomberg LP in London. She’s led social impact projects and volunteered around the world—from India to Spain to Cambodia—and landed in New Zealand in 2011. She has been using her talents for bottom-up management, systems and process design, and strategic thinking to launch several new companies over the last few years, including Loomio, the organization behind a powerfully practical approach to collaborative decision-making.
Wellington, NZ-based Enspiral is a network of professionals and social enterprises driven by a desire to change the world—and to make progress on making all organizations fundamentally more human, more inclusive, and more collaborative.
