How We Have to Change Our Mindset to Playing Big

On Saturday 22 September 2018, I spoke at the International Women’s Empowerment Summit in Cologne, Germany. The Summit brought together Women from around Europe, It was organised by Laura Tinzoh and the team at LaTinzoh Investments and German-based entrepreneur. The event was very well organised and enlightening for all the women in attendance. It was one of the very few events I have attended in a non-English speaking country with two Languages (German and English), which for me was a breath of fresh air.

Here is my talk. It was recorded by a friend Clara Meierdiecks on my new Samsung S9. Enjoy!



My talk focused on encouraging women to go for whatever dreams they want without hesitation and waiting for the right moment, qualification or mentor. We must accept and appreciate that we have challenges on our journey to developing a business or career while raising a family. I discussed points covered in the slide deck below.
