Stephanie’s diverse background enables her to establish an authentic connection with her audience. Born in Brazil and raised in Geneva and London, she has an intuitive understanding of the cultural differences that shape our worldviews and factors these into her talks to ensure her stories remain relevant.
Stephanie has a deep understanding of the business world. She worked as a lawyer in large corporates for over a decade and has run her own company for the past six years. She has been studying human behaviour throughout her career and loves drawing on her expertise in interpersonal skills and wellbeing practices.
Her talks focus on two core themes:
The New Female Business Leader
The face of leadership is changing. ‘Vulnerability’ is no longer an unspoken word and the limitations of the tough ‘alpha boss’ archetype have been exposed. Women are in a prime position to own a new paradigm of leadership rooted in emotional intelligence, caring and collaboration. Countless studies have shown that this style of leadership is incredibly good for business and increasing the number of senior female leaders is key to this. For many women, making this leap requires dismantling deeply-held, limiting beliefs about their abilities and ambitions.
During this talk Stephanie will share:
The benefits of balanced female leadership for business
The three key barriers holding women back from progressing in their careers
How women can overcome these barriers
A model that enables women to draw on their core strengths, develop resilience and become authentic, powerful leaders
Beyond Gender Equality
Achieving gender equality is an urgent priority for our world, but it shouldn’t be our final goal. By addressing half of the equation (women’s rights) and failing to remedy the challenges men face in our society, we risk perpetuating harmful gender divisions.
Instead, we need to value the inherent strengths that lie within ‘masculine’ and ‘feminine’ qualities, whether these are embodied by men or women, and create cultures that harness and celebrate these differences. This needs to happen in every sphere – governments, boardrooms, communities and homes - so that we can become a more collaborative society with significantly more resources through which to solve the world’s biggest problems and achieve sustainable growth.
In this talk Stephanie will explain:
The case for moving our conversation and initiatives beyond gender equality towards gender harmony
What gender harmony is and why it’s essential in the workplace and beyond
How we can work together to accelerate towards it
Stephanie is also happy to custom design a talk on a related topic to fit your needs
