The world gets better when the extraordinary privilege and responsibility of leadership is equally shared.
As a CEO, leading teams of up to 5,000 globally, I have seen firsthand the challenges women face in reaching their ultimate potential. Today, as an Executive Mentor, I provide that support.
My goal is to inspire 100,000 women to take the next step in their career. To stop being their best kept secret!
Brave Feminine Leadership was created to break down myths of leadership and share how other successful leaders have dealt with their own feelings of self-doubt, of believing that their hard work will lead to recognition and promotion, of having to change their leadership style to "fit-in".
What started as a curious question around leadership, led to a series of Brave Feminine Leadership interviews now available as podcasts. The core themes that have resonated so strongly in all of these 60+ conversations are:
Imposter syndrome is alive and well (and can be overcome)
Self-awareness and how you SHOW UP as a leader is absolutely key to your success
We are all so much more powerful than we realise
Don't be your best kept secret
It is time for skills seen as traditionally feminine; empathy, compassion, listening and building trust to rise.
This phase of my career is so exciting as I can feel such a strong momentum and energy around diversity. I am driven to keep stimulating conversations and break down myths of leadership.

"Honestly, I loved every part of the masterclass and it is hard to fault anything - it provided me with the tools that I needed to own my own career. I was surprised at how much I was able to get out of the four weeks. I wish there was more!"
" Just wanted to say that all the facilitators were absolutely amazing. I felt everyone was brave, genuine and inspiring to hear from and it gave me so much energy. After each session, I felt inspired and excited for my own career and the best part was realising the potential that I already had in me and building that confidence to just back myself. "
