Leaves from a tree symbolizing emotional intelligence workshops

Not just another female motivational speaker…

Inspiration and motivation alone won’t create the significant change we need to have equity & inclusion. At the current rate of progress, it will take 300 years to achieve full gender equality. What we need is education & emotional intelligence. Having worked with thousands of female leaders & business owners, navigating real-life situations and organizational challenges, I have seen firsthand what it takes to empower women. My work looks at the intersection between personal development (and empowerment) and systemic change. Want to make a difference in gender equity & inclusion, book an event today!

  • Female CEOs are 45% more likely to be fired
  • Only 24 countries have women as Head of State or of Government (According to estimates, these positions won’t reach gender equality for at least 130 years at the current rate)
