Informal Interactions with Noelle Walsh

Corporate Vice President, Cloud Operations & Innovation Microsoft

As an executive of one of the world’s largest cloud and technology companies, how do you find time to maintain a work-life balance?

To be honest, I love my work week to be very full. I do a bit of walking or running in the morning to keep my mind fresh and kick the body into gear. Then, I am happy at the weekend to go for a long walk with friends or a hike. I love walking, talking, and traveling with friends to explore new areas. My personal life isn’t crazy-it’s not bungee jumping and speed-car racing. Just give me a walk in the woods. That’s how I find my balance-connection with nature helps keep me grounded.
