About this Event


The Quietly Powerful conversation will teach you that far from being a weakness, your quieter nature can be an advantage in the workplace.


  • Have you ever doubted your ability to take on leadership roles because you are quieter?
  • Do you feel exhausted having to be vocal and trying to look confident?
  • Are you hesitant about promoting yourself to get ahead?
  • Do you find it difficult to be heard to influence and lead?


During Megumi’s 20+ year career at Accenture, ANZ and NAB, the answer was not only “yes”, but also “and far too often”. She burnt out and realised “fake it till you make it” was neither sustainable nor fulfilling.

Megumi launched Quietly Powerful in 2016 to share the surprising successes, familiar challenges and practical lessons of becoming quietly powerful.

In this workshop, Megumi will share experiences from her own career, her coaching program participants and insights from interviews with Quietly Powerful Leaders who succeeded by using their quiet strengths.


You will find out:


  • How to stop holding yourself back as a quiet professional
  • How to use your quiet nature as your leadership strengths
  • The critical ingredient you need to adapt without having to change yourself


Join Megumi for a conversation on 18th November to explore what it takes to both succeed on your own terms and also work together to expand the definition of good leadership.
