Leadership Courage: Build leadership influence and impact beyond your comfort zone

Leading Women: Dare Boldly, Speak Bravely, Never Cower

Women make great leaders. When more women sit at decision making tables it measurably improves the outcomes of the decisions being made. The reasons contributing to this are many and complex. However the challenges organisations and society face in creating greater gender equality are not insurmountable. In this powerful, insightful and inspiring program Margie will share insights and strategies to help women (and men) close the gap and continue to break down the glass ceiling.   Margie’s focus is not on the policy changes that need to occur, but on changing entrenched mindsets about the value women bring, their ability to handle the conflicting demands of family and career, and the core ways women can build their leadership brand and effectiveness in every arena of work and life.

Margie has spoken at a host of women’s leadership events around the globe, coached many female leaders across diverse industries and interviewed many others in her research.  Read her Forbes column on International Women’s Day.
