The board of the National Opera Studio is delighted to announce the appointment of two new trustees - Dori Dana-Haeri and Antje Hensel-Roth. 

Dori Dana-Haeri

Dori Dana-Haeri has a wide-ranging experience of the strategic problems facing industries. After a career as a management consultant, she now has a portfolio of interests. Her portfolio includes advisor/board member to a number of organizations. These include: the investment committee of a significant corporate Venture where she performs strategic marketing due diligence; an early-stage Agri- tech company, advising them on how to go to market with their environmentally innovative products, a pre-IPO unicorn with a unique technology in Israel and -a global multi-family office and independent investment firm where she works on direct investments.

She has sat for many years on the board of trustees of several charities in the UK and Africa. She was chair of the London Development and a Trustee of Maggie’s Cancer Care and a Trustee of the Persia Educational Foundation. Dori was the founder and General Partner of Eden Ventures an early-stage technology venture capital fund, and Executive Chairman of Above Wealth an innovative wealth management start up. Dori is the founder of DDH Consultants working with fortune 500 companies on growth and innovation.

Watching one of the coaches at work I realised what a unique organisation NOS is . It delivers everything I believe in- education,  creativity and giving opportunities to truly talented people everywhere.

Antje Hensel-Roth

Chief People and External Affairs Officer at ICG, a global leader in alternative investments, Antje is responsible for leading both strategic human capital management with a particular focus on business diversification strategies, as well as communications and external affairs.

She has led a comprehensive drive for excellence in leadership, talent management and diversity & inclusion. She possesses extensive experience in the global asset management industry, with a particular focus on alternative investments. She has been instrumental in delivering new business initiatives and driving diversification into new investment strategies as well as positioning ICG as an employer of choice for high calibre executives across all business lines globally. She also has led the charge on establishing an international charity programme designed to provide preparation and enhance access to the investment industry for disadvantaged young people. 

Prior to joining ICG, Antje was Global Co‐Head of the Investment Management Practice at Russell Reynolds Associates. Antje graduated from the University of Düsseldorf and holds a master’s degree from the London School of Economics.

I’m thrilled to be joining the NOS as a trustee and support its critical work in developing some of the most impressive young singers and repetiteurs in the world. I especially look forward to seeing this next generation of artists bring to life their own visions for opera and exciting both existing and new audiences, as opera continues to evolve in the UK and beyond.
