What do Google, Fast Company and the World Economic Forum have in common? Key innovative female leaders recognised by all these organisations and more, are featured in a new podcast that shares extraordinary career stories and advice with the aim of inspiring other women to take action.
Sydney board directors and leadership and innovation advisors, Claire Hatton and Greta Thomas, are on a mission to increase the number of women who become leaders in innovation and pioneers in their fields.
Enter ‘Don’t Stop Us Now!,’ a new international podcast created by the duo. The podcast series shares authentic stories and practical advice from pioneering and innovative women from around the globe. The interviews reveal the real person behind the success story, their doubts, fears and tough times and how they overcame them.
Thomas says the world desperately needs more women playing key roles in shaping our future businesses, tech and society.
“For example, only 21 per cent* of quotes in the news media are from women – despite the fact there are multitudes of perfectly qualified women to whom one could turn. Our podcast aims to help change this reality,” says Thomas.
To help correct this imbalance, Don’t Stop Us Now! available on iTunes and all popular podcasting platforms, includes an ever growing, impressive array of guests including:
- Silicon Valley’s Courtney Hohne, the Chief Storyteller for X – The Moonshot Factory (Google’s elite innovation lab)
- Tina Sharkey, San Francisco based serial entrepreneur and co-founder and CEO of Brandless, one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies 2018
- Audette Exel, a Forbes Hero of Philanthropy proving investment bankers have a heart
- Rachel Botsman, author and thought leader whose TED talks have been viewed more than 4 million times
- Kate Vale, employee number one at Google Australia & NZ, and at Spotify Australia
- Siew Hoon Yeoh, travel entrepreneur and creator of Web in Travel, a content and events company focused on online travel
And coming soon:
- Rebekah Campbell, serial Australian entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of Zambesi
- Heidi Hackemer, VP, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
The show also features ‘How to’ episodes which explore common career issues and evidence-based tools to tackle these challenges.
