About the speaker

Be Authentic to Become Equal

When we look at our societies, our bodies, our rights, our relationships at work and at home, can we really say we are equal? The answer is likely to be a painful “No” Often a simple networking event that we are attending with the hope to meet the perfect client or a great business partner happens to be an experience where we feel and keep a position of “being less” and where we fail to create a powerful and empowered connection or impression. Same for a work interview with the employer of our dreams or a meeting with potential investors. Amelie Yan-Gouiffes will invite her audience to reflect and observe these life and professional situations where we create or disrupt equality and share learnings and wisdom from humanitarian crisis settings where she worked. The participants will learn simple yet efficient techniques to build and honor equality.
