Aaron Solomon is the Director of Strategy and Legal Liaison of Group. Aaron was strongly drawn to mission because of his own experience in the legal profession and what he saw as a fundamental lack of understanding around the human issues that arise out of client crises. This led him to explore issues of professional agency, the intersection of personal crisis and work, and non-traditional pathways to success and wellbeing. He firmly believes that self-awareness is central to success in business and life.
