Beatrice has assisted countless people gain promotion, get that job or grab a pay rise (or two) over 20 years in technology, management and operational roles.
Beatrice’s go to mantra is “I think I can” based on her favourite childhood book: “The little engine that could”, and perhaps her family’s love affair with trains.
Beatrice takes a Captain Kirk approach to career building – to win the game you must re-write the game. After 18 years in IT, Beatrice has observed how few people understand or appreciate the influence of corporate politics and those who do, often do not possess the skills necessary to navigate these politics successfully to build a career.
Beatrice is a dedicated advocate for progressing women, increasing diversity in the IT workforce and is passionate about mentoring women to advance their careers.
After carefully planning out the promotion of a junior collegue and helping her realise that promotion in half the time planned (6 weeks instead of 3 months), Beatrice realised she had a very effective way of gaining a promotion and that other women could benefit from this plan. Beatrice began talking through her ideas and realised that a book may be a useful medium for providing an how to guide to promotion. From there Beatrice has published one book via Amazon Kindle and other ebook on theimreadynowbook.com, commence a career related blog and is building a business in career and ambition coaching for women, called I’m Ready Now! Coaching.
