Much of the “join” movement is about who you know. 

My female friends are the center of my world. I trust they have my best interests at heart. My initial inspiration to join Women in Cloud was Carrie Francey. If Carrie says “do this,” I do it. And that is how I operate with many of my female friends. 

This is a community of women I am passionate about. They are blazing the trail—both in helping companies reach the cloud and helping women reach their potential. 

I have spent over 20 years helping leaders increase their impact in high stakes communication moments. I am passionate about empowering women to find and deliver stories they can use to drive impact. Whether their “impact” is in their corporations or communities, storytelling is an incredibly powerful tool for persuasion and influence. 

Presence, Persuasion, Perseverance and Planning are all part of success in high-stakes moments. But storytelling is an essential component that often goes unnoticed. Finding stories that drive impact is difficult, as is delivering these stories in a way that connects and compels. It requires practice and confidence. So this has become my mission: to help women confidently deliver stories that can change lives in their organizations and beyond.

At Women in Cloud Summit 2020, I will specifically address: 

  • Practical tips for finding and delivering stories with impact
  • Communicating with confidence and clarity
  • Quickly creating a story that is relevant to your audience

As a speaker, I will focus on ensuring women are given an opportunity to tell their story and tell it right. I look forward to meeting everybody who is interested in advancing their mission through clear and compelling communication. 

Stories have always had the power to influence mindsets and change the course of history. Women in Cloud is one such story that needs to be given attention, to ensure women of tomorrow will not go through discriminations made in today’s society. This calls us to pool our resources together to take collective action. 

Women in Cloud’s mission is very aligned to my mission of helping drive impact by finding and telling stories that can change lives. 

We have to ask ourselves, “How can we step into uncomfortable moments to drive change?” Do we acknowledge and take advantage of the opportunities we are given? Do we reach out to ensure everyone has a voice? For me, this means looking in the places where we don’t typically look for opportunities. 

This summit gives me hope for the next generation of women who we can inspire with the stories we tell today. Purchase tickets today and be a part of a story bigger than yourself.
