Unlock the secret to success

Katty Kay believes confidence is a skill that can be practiced and reinforced through action. In this dynamic speech, learn:

  • Why women tend to lack confidence, and what it will take for them to build it.
  • The latest scientific research-backed insights on confidence-building.
  • How to leave your comfort zone, take on challenges, prepare for failure, and achieve success.

The Power Code

More Joy, Less Ego

Recent research shows that women do not seek out positions of power. However, companies and countries alike fare better with women in leadership positions. What needs to change for women to take power? Katty Kay explains how: 

  • Women avoid taking on powerful roles because the cost of power is too high.
  • The solution lies in changing the path to power, not changing ourselves.
  • Organizations must build a clear association between power and positive change.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine led to a shift in global power structures that cannot be overstated. In this talk on global politics from a seasoned journalist’s perspective, learn:
