Confident Conversations is a weekly podcast show for ambitious women about confidently balancing work and life, hosted by me, Sherry Bevan, Author, Coach & Speaker. A former Global Head of IT Service for a City law firm, I now work as a women's leadership coach helping ambitious women get clear on what they really want then find the confidence to do it.
While Julia, mum of 6, is now an award-winning specialist and small business social media expert, her career started in the Metropolitan Police Forensic Science Lab in London. She wrote the training material and trained more than 20 hugely resistant, highly respected, court reporting officers who didn’t believe in this new-fangled DNA testing being introduced.
In Julia's next role, she was responsible for setting up a new unit to create the first national DNA database. In her new role she was responsible for recruiting, training and leading a team of 60 scientists and yet she only worked 3 days a week. Julia demonstrates that YES leadership on part-time hours can be done.
In today’s episode, we discuss:
Julia's top tips for women in leadership: don't try and do everything. Delegate effectively which means giving responsibility, backing and support.
