I didn’t want to be a leader. I was perfectly happy as an individual contributor basking in the glory of a job well done: ahead of schedule, better than expected, and immediately quantifiable.


Then I was promoted to Editorial Director of the Americas at BabyCenter, and I had to manage teams in three countries, as well as participate in high-level meetings that set the strategic direction of the company.


Fear and anxiety cripple me for the first few months, but I learned to break through the breaking down.


I gained the respect of my peers, consistently exceeded company goals and got shining performance reviews. Most importantly, I gained the courage to keep pushing for my growth.


I now speak at conferences and companies’ meetings to help other reluctant leaders embrace leadership, thanks to advice that helps them become better leaders… and better persons.


Hire me to motivate your leadership team and aspiring leaders or your conference guests. I will give a passionate talk with actionable insights that can change the course of their career.
