Top 100 Leaders from Multilateral Organisations: From Kristalina Georgieva to Jamal Bin Huwaireb, These Are the Most Influential People in This Sphere (2018)

Whether you’re a would-be leader from a multilateral organisation or have spent some years being one, you could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of multilateral organisation insiders who have been through the journey before.

So we’ve compiled a list of top multilateral organisation insiders. It’s a list of the most influential people in multilateral organisations, particularly at being pro-active.

If you’re an enthusiast of relevant fields including public health, economics, business and social or behavioural sciences, it is critical that you follow and connect with these influencers from multilateral organisations and expand your professional network.

Here’s what some of them said about this list:

If you enjoyed this post on the 100 Most Influential People in Multilateral Organisations (2018), share, please.

Update: This list was published in 2018 using an old approach; some leaders have changed roles or organisations since this list got published. We may or may not produce a new list of leaders from multilateral organisations with our more advanced and novel in-house approach for 2020 or 2021. It takes more than 100 hours to create our improved lists, hence will depend heavily on our limited time-constraints because we are a small team working with a few resources. Thank you for your interest and attention.
