Snéha Khilay is the Managing Director of Blue Tulip Consultancy.

Over the past 20 years, she has developed expertise on diversity, inclusion, and management & leadership development. Her focus is to change and improve interactions between people within the business world.  

Working in international training contexts, Snéha has advised and worked with Board Members, CEOs, Executive Directors and Senior Managers on how to develop a strategic and operational approach to the changing stance on equality, diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias.
