Even after nearly 20 years in tech, I was still far too often the only woman in the room, or the only woman in the room with the power and the presence to influence and make business decisions.
And, even with my snazzy title of Senior Global Director, deep expertise in coaching and change, proven experience across more than 25 countries, and numerous certificates and awards...people still slipped into trying to talk over my insight, ignoring my experience, or even lifting my expertise and claiming it as their own.
Sometimes they succeeded.
But never, ever for long.
Making sure I was seen, heard, and taken seriously by building the skill of bravery as a woman in tech is the core reason why:
I became an exec before age 30
I worked in over 25 countries, representing the most significant transformational programs for a major software company
I had the choice of projects, assignments, and roles throughout my career
I relocated globally to the country and city of my choice to meet the needs of my family
And right now, as the tech industry shifts in ways that were unimaginable only eight months ago it is especially crucial that you make sure you know how to be seen, heard, and taken seriously as a woman in tech.
This simple, action-oriented course is designed on the most proven and cutting edge research for success, my own experience as a woman in tech, and the many success stories from my clients.
“The Build Your Bravery course has already made 5x ROI for me: raise mid-year, finally crossing 100,000Euro. All because I got specific, showed up and got heard, and shifted my relationship with my project lead just a bit.”

Girl, you know he lifted that idea from you. You know he lifted that expertise right out of your brilliance.
Are you really going to watch him get the praise, the raise, and the promotion?
You know the tech that it is out there is … good. But isn’t all it could be. Tech today is leaving too many people behind, ignoring too much excellence and potential.
