In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Executive Voice Coach and Founder of Speaking at Work, Emma Wainer.
Emma has had a 'squiggly' career that has enabled her to build some diverse skills, that all neatly come together in her work to help women step up as impactful leaders. She started in pharmaceutical sales, before training as a speech and language therapist. A job she loved. She later used these skills within the events industry, before taking a career break to raise her children. A time when she found she lost all her previous confidence.
She took the brave step to supplement her existing skills with a Master Degree in voice coaching from the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London, while her daughter was just three-years old. Then brought her new skills, together with her existing experiences, to launch her business: Speaking at Work.
Listen to this episode to hear Emma's tips and insights that all female entrepreneurs and leaders can embrace, to quickly enhance their credibility, and leadership presence.
Women are socially conditioned to be small. This impacts our ability to be seen and heard. It's essential that we learn how to take up more space if we want to be recognised as credible leaders. - Emma Wainer
