Vijay Luthra

London, United Kingdom

Vijay Luthra began his career in the challenging arena of the live music and events industry.  Wishing to apply his skills in less noisy, more predictable environments, Vijay moved into operations and project management roles with the Mayor of London’s administration delivering a range of initiatives from the 2007 and 2008 Red Bull Air Races to organisation restructures to CRM deployments; graduating to leading visitor welcome initiatives for London 2012. 

Since 2012, Vijay has been a consultant across a range of sectors from financial services, consumer and manufacturing to government, working a number of firms including PwC.  Vijay has specialised in helping organisations with their strategic execution challenges – two thirds of strategies fail in execution.  Vijay’s current focus is on diversity and inclusion and the importance of this to innovation in a VUCA world.  Where companies are increasingly challenged to innovate to compete; having diverse experiences and views in leadership teams is an important driver of success. 

Outside work, Vijay is an advocate of organ donation; having been the lucky recipient of a cadaveric kidney transplant in 2006.  Vijay is also a recovering politician and has been using the advocacy skills he developed as a local councillor to bang the drum for cognitively diverse teams, collective intelligence and its link to better strategy and execution, including as a Non-Executive Director.  Vijay is a Chartered Project Manager and RSA Fellow.

Disruption demands projects, projects demand diversity
October 31, 2019

Diversity of thought will be key to the future of projects. Diversity of thought can only be delivered through diversity in teams, organisations, companies and across our profession. But this isn’t about quotas and affirmative action programmes – the challenge for our industry is to think differently about talent and capability and have a broader definition of ‘what good looks like’.
