You ARE enough, just as you are; it’s time to believe it.

As an introvert, it can be easy to feel that there is something wrong with you:

  • You’re ‘too quiet.’ 
  • You don’t enjoy small talk. 
  • You quickly run out of energy.

Work is stressful as you feel forced to wear a mask; that you can only succeed if you pretend to be someone you’re not.

Imagine the freedom that comes with being unashamedly authentic and truly believing in yourself. Imagine being able to be able to help others but also prioritise yourself, because you can set healthy boundaries. Imagine feeling that your time is abundant.

Now make this your reality!

Sam, you are #IamRemarkable to me. Without you, our UKI programme at Salesforce would never have scaled and so many of us learned so much from you. I am going to miss working with you and how seamless you made everything.
