About Lyn Bird

I am a purpose-driven human amplifier, ecosystem collaborator, and change activator who is obsessed with innovation. ​

In my current role as the Vice President of Enterprise Functions at Microsoft, I bring over 25 years of experience working with large global/multinational companies to activate transformation. I have the distinct privilege of bringing customers, partners, and product teams together to leverage incredible Microsoft Technology with an innovation mindset to unlock value within functions such as finance and performance, HR & employee experience, and more.​

Prior to joining Microsoft, I was an instrumental part of building Accenture’s industry-defining client relationships across every segment/ business in Oil and Gas (BP, Shell, Suncor, MOL, SASOL), Mining, Utilities, Consumer Health, Retail, Insurance and Banking. Having lived and worked in South Africa, London, Holland, USA (Texas and Pacific Northwest), Canada, Switzerland and Hungary, I consider myself very much a global citizen.​

As we navigate the pandemic and post-pandemic world, I believe that companies must embrace innovation, digitization, and a rejuvenated corporate culture. As Jon Foster Pedley says, this transformation will require companies to both learn and unlearn at the same speed as the change around us.​


I am proud to help our clients and partners facilitate their modernization process by addressing a flavour of these sorts of questions:​

• How do we amplify the role of the CFO/finance function in the safeguarding of business continuity and in enabling digital innovation?​

• What does it take to build a connected, AI driven and touchless Finance organization?​

• How do I take my workforce along with me in effectively accelerating new business models?​

• How can I learn more about my employees and how to best empower their success and productivity? ​

• How do we drive a sense of belonging in a hybrid work environment?​
