Please introduce / describe yourself
I am a mum of two and an entrepreneur. I juggle home life and working smart (and hard) to build a business that empowers and connects mothers & women called FLEXImums.
I like to think that I am a fixer, creator, jack of all trades – always thinking of how to make things better, coming up with new concepts and events, trying to solve problems and thinking about what to do next.
When did you join WiFA? Which committee will you be leading in 2020 and what are your key goals?
I joined WiFA in 2018 as the Co-Chair of the Education Committee. In my role I have been focusing on events that empower women and support Diversity & Inclusion. In 2020, my focus will remain the same, targeting resilience and wellbeing.
Tell us one thing that is important for #CreatingTheWorkforceOfTheFuture
To be successful in the future a creative and flexible skillset will be required – essentially being able to adapt. Being eager to learn will be important for the workforce of the future too.
What advice would you give to women who want to lead?
It all starts with listening! Understand what people need to be happy and successful; listen, learn and help. Eventually you will be recognised as someone people want to listen to and they will come to you for advice.
