Below is a recording of an interview I did in August 2019 with Siun Byrne and Michael Daly of the “D15 Today” show on Phoenix FM. I spoke about gender balance at board and CEO level.
“Part of what I will do is make this journey uncomfortable for you,
because the greatest teacher is adversity.”
The above words were what Jill Ellis said at her first meeting with the USA players after she had been hired as head coach.
Yesterday, five years after that meeting, the USA won the World Cup in women’s soccer for a record fourth time by beating The Netherlands, 2-0.
Listen to a recording of an interview I did in April 2018 with Q102, in advance of my event in Dublin, The Dinner For Ladies Who Don’t Lunch.
I was kept on my toes last week as I organised a dinner for business women in my network. Fantastic food and cocktails in Saba Dublin were mixed with plenty of interesting chat and contact sharing.
A client and I were chatting about the topic of ‘women in business’ recently and she asked me if in my experience I thought that there were any glaring differences between my male and female clients. The reason the question came up was because I’d mentioned the significant shift I’d observed in my own coaching business over the past 4 years in relation to the % of female business leaders that I deal with. (It’s grown to 50%).
