I just finished listening to a super inspiring podcast about a foreign female CEO who lead a successful digital transformation.
This is about Nancy McKinstry who became the first foreign and female CEO of Wolters Kluwer - a Dutch publishing house which was established in 1830. Currently the publishing house earns more than 90% of their income from digital products.
How did they drive the Digital Transformation and what are their learnings?
✅ When you start your digital transformation, don’t forget your old product or service. True transformations take time and you need to work on both - future and present.
✅ Have patience! The currently best performing products from Wolters Kluwer were started 12 years ago.
✅ Diversity plays a huge role in developing business, especially if you are operating in foreign markets.
Thanks Nancy McKinstry for sharing your inspiring story!

Last year I went through this journey myself. It was not an easy decision. Leaving a nice and secure job, a respective company to jump into the unknown; volunteering in rural Uganda with women.
A career break can be tough, but one thing’s for sure; you learn a lot and come back a bit different. If you have some similar thoughts such as;
What is my purpose? Why do I do what I do? Where am I going?
If you answered any of those questions with “yes”, I’d I like to invite you to read my blog post where I share how I experienced my own career break.
Recently I attended a super insightful Women in Tech 2020 conference which united together so many inspiring women from all over the world.
Even though recording videos is so out of my comfort zone, I decided to do it by sharing my key takeways in 2 minutes.
What a great initiative from Catalyst organization to increase our awareness about gender biases at the workplace which influences women careers.
Studies have shown that indeed women who portray the same behaviors as men are perceived differently.
