Hello!  I really hope that this summer finds you well and refreshed despite the pandemic. Like most of us, mine was unpredictable. I left my office 3 weeks ago knowing there was every chance that our holiday destination may come under quarantine, and 4 days into our trip it did! 

And probably just like you, I had the best intentions, I was going to share with you the best things I’ve learnt in my career. On day 2 I set out my laptop ready to deliver to you my first Linked-in live. But fraught with connection issues, I resigned to try again the following day. After repeated failed attempts I became convinced the universe was trying to tell me to have a break. 

You know in our work, we’re used to technical glitches & the workarounds. We’d always have a backup option, the offline version of a workbook or demo. Local copies, dry runs and testing. We’d arrive early and get the tech set up, making sure we know we are prepared! 

So what did I do instead… well I spent quality time with my family and friends because often we forget how happy that makes us. I recorded a few of those lives – it was chaos, in fact, here’s a shot of Amelie ‘photobombing’ a recording. 


How was your summer? Are you refreshed? Have you had fun with your loved ones? 

What are you avoiding?


Most of us know there are things we should be doing that good for our progress, and will improve our lives. Some things take you out of your comfort zone, fearful of doing something new or change. Whether its a new role, an interview, a presentation or project pushing you to new levels. 

In all the work I’ve done, it’s clear that we can encourage others better than ourselves, and there’s one thing that truly puts everything into perspective. 

Watch the Live recording for how to overcome that fear

From the video:

It’s so ironic presenting is what I love doing in my day job right and I was a lecturer for 8 years, standing in front of a 100 students & parents greeting them on day one did not phase me. I also went live during the lockdown on a 30 day supercharge your career challenge.

Yet here I am trying to get over a fear of going live to you, to share things that have helped me and others, to help you progress and grow. Perhaps because you are my peers and I have the ultimate respect for your opinion.

I remember back at uni teacher training the most scray/dreaded exercise was delivering a micro lesson to my peers. Not the first time in front of 32 kids.. but ten minutes in front of my 15 peers.

So I wanted to share the biggest things that have helped me and my colleagues to inspire and empower you, as future tech leaders and this one is all about overcoming fear to take action.

What’s the worst that can happen?

  1. The importance of encouraging yourself – it’s not the outcome is the process, you may need to ask for help but that’s ok, we can’t grow unless we have a go.
  2. Train your brain – logically assess the worst that can happen. This creates a new message, one that can be internalised.

I hope that helps you to get out of your own way and start building a career you love, here’s to inspiring and empowering you,

Sue xx
