In 2019 I had the fortune of finding myself in a lecture room at WITS business school this time as a guest lecture not as a student. I was here to share my learnings as a women in business, prior to this moment I thought back on everything that has created the person who stood in front of these women about to share her learnings. What were the influences in my life? What has made me choose this particular path? What are the daily struggles I have had to work through in order to become a better person?
I found myself in a reflective state for weeks prior to this moment and I realized that I have always loved sharing, learning from each other and most importantly teaching. It’s this spirit that lit the fire within me to collect and edit the stories that now make us “Those who travel meet Themselves”. Transformation and healing involves learning from the past, present and future, opening up to possibility and allowing will to be the driver of possibility.
After I finished my lecture I had time to engage the phenomenal women who were in the room, we talked and engaged for 15 minutes before they had to return to class. I left this space fulfilled and knowing that I wanted to continue on this path to continue learning, teaching and growing together. So you can imagine in the height of Lockdown when I was asked if I would guest lecture again in this time from a online platform. I was absolutely delighted at the opportunity to participate again.
This time the topic was Gender Identity in leadership and in preparation I reached out to the wide network of women I know who have done their time in corporate and asked them for their lessons learnt. I received so much input, and I thank each and every person who contributed from around the world. Please visit the resources page to download the lessons learnt.
For 2021 I would like to put it out to the universe that I look forward to more opportunities to teach and learn from each other, no matter where you are in the world I am here if we have synergy let us create together. I AM OPEN. I AM READY.
