Speaker Bio

Back to her native French Alps after a decade in the UK, Sophie has learned and developed her Product Management skills with talented folks in education, mobility, connected devices, and sports, namely.

Her unique mix of curiosity, calm and passion drives her to identify what makes her teams tick and support them as they journey towards better collaboration, while embracing their authentic selves, and developing more emotional awareness.

An avid learner, she enjoys working with organisations that genuinely care about the future: theirs, its people’s, the environment’s.

Fun Fact: Sophie is a lover of wine and running on ice (she’s a 2022 Polar Circle Marathon finisher), two tremendous activities, as long as they aren’t mixed together!

We need to smash down the idea that being a leader only equates to being strong all the time and having all the answers: there are many ways to lead, and we’ll tap into our collective intelligence to help you find your own authentic expression.

If Brené Brown and Spiderman had a brainchild, that kid would probably say “with great power comes great vulnerability”. Well, to be honest, we believe it’s the other way around. Becoming aware of your vulnerability takes courage, and harnessing it is so rewarding. Embark with us on this journey to leadership and more connected teams through empathy, authenticity and efficiency.

(Yes, admittedly, we sound like your friendly Instagram self-appointed thought leaders, but we swear we are not.)

Session Key Takeaways:

  • A newly-found support group you can nurture to help you grow
  • Practical, actionable tips to support you as an authentic leader
  • Proven tools to practice vulnerability

This session is for you if…you’re a people manager (whether seasoned or newly-minted) and struggling with the idea of being vulnerable at work, not having all the answers, fighting impostor syndrome…
