Brian Murphy

Former Head of Learning and Leadership Development

Brian is the head of Learning & Development for Citi in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. He leads a team of learning and engagement professionals who support learning experiences which help drive individual, leadership, and organisational performance.

Brian also leads global efforts to develop a culture of workplace learning across Citi’s 200,000 employees in over 100 countries.

In 1999 Brian started his career with Citi in Ireland before moving to the UK to hold a series of regional HR Director roles where he led the HR function for various banking divisions within Citigroup. 

Brian believes passionately that the L&D profession is at a historical crossroads. It can choose a traditional approach which is increasingly irrelevant to “real work”, or it can become a key enabler for business performance, innovation, and culture change.

Brian holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business and a Master’s degree in International Relations, both from Dublin City University, and is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Personnel & Development, and a Fellow of the Learning & Performance Institute.
