Becoming ‘Quietly Powerful’ at work…
  • Have you ever felt like your ideas are not heard or taken seriously?
  • Are you naturally quieter and feel hesitant about promoting yourself?
  • Do you feel exhausted having to pretend to be vocal and trying to look confident?
  • Do you feel like you have to be extroverted and masculine to get ahead?

Join Megumi Miki to explore what it takes to succeed on your own terms and work together to redefine what good leadership looks like in organisations.

At the end of a long career working at Accenture, ANZ and NAB, Megumi felt she answered ‘yes’ to all of the above questions and she had worked very hard and was feeling burnt out. She soon came to realise that the ‘fake it till you make it’ approach was not sustainable and unfulfilling so she decided to experiment with a different approach. Last year she launched Quietly Powerful Women to share her successes, challenges and learning’s from working on becoming quietly powerful.

Megumi Miki is an author, speaker and consultant in leadership and culture, with a background in strategy, economics and finance. She helps leaders unlock their potential by being smart together, not on their own. She has worked closely with senior Technology leaders at NAB and enjoyed the openness of Technology professionals to challenge themselves and adapt. As a result she wants to help the ICT sector to lead the way in redefining what good leadership looks like.
