White paper: Quietly Powerful - Get your talents recognised and succeed on your own terms as a quieter professional

Megumi Miki, Updated December 2017

It is challenging when talented professionals are naturally quieter or have introverted preferences as many workplaces value extroversion. They are regularly told to speak up, promote themselves and demonstrate extroverted behaviours to get ahead. Too many talented quieter professionals who contribute a lot fail to get noticed, recognised or are overlooked. Some find it too difficult to switch to extroverted behaviours. Others are good at pretending to be an extrovert but feel exhausted or depleted in doing so. The white paper outlines a way for these professionals to become quietly powerful and thrive by leveraging their natural qualities more fully.

Webinar recording: Introducing Quietly Powerful

Megumi Miki, June 2017

The first ever global webinar to introduce the Quietly Powerful movement was held on 7th June 2017 with over 200 people registering. With attendees from around the world we discuss:


  • The challenges for quieter professional women (and men), including one that many are not even aware of.
  • Can quiet/introversion be an advantage?
  • How can we become quietly powerful?


Unfortunately the webinar recording quality is not great. It is slightly better from where the slide show starts so you may wish to skip to 8:30.

You can watch a shorter video instead of the webinar recording – this was created due to webinar recording quality issues. Video can be accessed HERE 


White paper: Rethink Diversity for Competitive Advantage

Megumi Miki, 2015

We work in an increasingly inter-dependent world where cross-border teams are becoming the norm and partnerships across the supply chain are a necessity. With technology driving disruption and business transformation, innovation is not ‘nice to do’. Traditional businesses are being overtaken by new business models, often started by talented individuals who didn’t ‘fit’ in organisations and the best talent are difficult to attract and retain. Organisations run the risk of falling behind if they do not leverage the power of diverse teams, thinking, and collaboration .
