Diary of a Small Island Girl in a Corporate World

In the beginning…

When I entered the corporate world way back when, I had a vision, some would even call it a fantasy of what the corporate experience would be.

This magical fantasy seed was planted as a child.

I was very fortunate to have grown up in the presence of several strong, intelligent and witty women.

I saw first hand the magic that happens when women who love and appreciate themselves and each other come together.

Without knowing it, this appreciation for strong and intelligent females led me to discovering some of my favourite TV shows growing up.

  1. The Golden Girls
  2. Designing Women
  3. The Ellen Show
  4. Girlfriends
  5. Xena
  6. Buffy
  7. La Femme Nikita
  8. Charmed

I had experienced girl power long before I had heard of the term.

Unfortunately, my experience of the corporate world couldn’t have been further from the whimsical fantasy I had built in my head.

It was more La Femme Nikita rather than Designing Women.

Welcome to my diary and welcome to my world of:

  • Self-worth
  • Politics
  • Glass Ceiling
  • Women helping women

I will share mine and other women’s stories, mistakes and the lessons learnt along the way.
