What are you reading at the moment? If you’re more of a podcaster, what are you listening to? I am a little obsessed with women’s memoirs at the moment. I am currently reading ‘Becoming’ by Michelle Obama with ‘Any Ordinary Day’ by Leigh Sales next on the list. And I am listening to lots of The Goop podcast. My recent favourite is ‘Why Love Starts With Loneliness’ with Alain de Botton.
What is your favourite TED talk and why? I have so many! There’s the obvious ones like Brené Brown, but I also love Sarah Kay’s ‘If I Should Have A Daughter’ and Joshua Prager’s ‘In Search Of The Man Who Broke My Neck’. Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations is producing some great talks too. Glennon Doyle Melton’s ‘First the Pain, Then the Rising’ is a favourite I shared with friends on IWD last year.
The future for women is… NOW. We’ve got the talking stick, let’s not miss the opportunity.
We can lift each other up… By collaborating, not competing.
