Smashing the Myths of Women in Business!
Thriving in these fast-changing times requires new skills and better tools to “see, feel and think” in new ways. To make “change our friend,” we will have to smash the myths holding us and other women back from becoming the best that we can be. It is our time to “rethink” who we are and where we are going so we can grow further, faster, and better together. In my talk, we are going to do just that, help you see yourself through a fresh lens and help you begin to embrace change as your friend.
