Woman In Business

I recently came across this photo. I think this was 2011. I was General Manager of Hansa Pilsener working with such an amazing team who reported to me. Looking back at my time here – I was always feeling like an outsider in a man”s world, feeling like I had to fight for them to hear my voice in the boardroom. Hansa as a brand suited me so well because it was a pilsener not a lager. It was a brand that was an outsider. I felt quite lonely, quite vulnerable but I never dared show my vulnerability as I thought it would come across as weak. To all those women in senior positions – I know what it is to walk that road and feel so alone and feel like no one is there with you. I know the tears you shed alone and come out on the other side looking like you are strong. Meanwhile inside you see crumbling. But look here I am – I’ve gotten over this and so can you. One day this too shall pass right. If I can do so can you. Believe in you and know I am applauding you for coming this far. #lookingback #womaninbusiness #womenleader #beauthentic
