The Inner Chief

Feb 3, 2022

In this Best of Series episode, we hear from Nicky Sparshott, CEO of Unilever Australia & New Zealand, on being brave, taking the path less trodden and differentiating yourself.


Nicky has been involved with FMCG firm Unilever since 2006, as a senior manager and executive in various roles and locations around the world.

She became the CEO of Unilever Australia & New Zealand in March 2020, but we interviewed Nicky back in October 2017 when she was the Global CEO of T2 Tea, a luxury retailer and Unilever brand.

Nicky is also a non-executive director for a number of organisations and has built up quite the impressive resume and expertise across FMCG, Retail, Luxury, and Ecommerce.

In this episode, you’re going to hear Nicky talk about:

  • her lessons from a failed product launch;
  • taking the path less travelled, even if others don’t think it’s a good idea for you;
  • being brave and not being scared to fail; and
  • creating a track record that differentiates you from your peers.
