The Power of Educating a Girl

Suparna malhotraEvents, Inspiration0 Comments

I’m still reveling in the great success of the fundraiser we hosted for Pardada Pardadi Educational Society in Northern India. We managed to gain sponsorship for 128 girls on Sunday, and raised large amounts of money in addition. At least 128 families will benefit from Sunday. As one of the trustees for the school I could not be prouder or happier. … Read More

Emotions and Negotiation

Suparna malhotraCoaching, Confidence, Events, Leadership, Negotiation0 Comments

Of late in my life I have had a situation where I had a challenge dealing with stakeholders in my business. Realising that my preface may have been one based on an assumption the other party means to disrupt or perhaps comes from malice, rather than my best interest at heart was interesting. This made me more conscious of the … Read More

Networking Nightmare?

Suparna malhotraCoaching, Leadership, Networking0 Comments

Does networking seem like a nightmare to you? Does the very word make you want to hide? I’ve always considered myself a rather outgoing person, not usually afraid to talk to strangers. I’ve even been known to do the unthinkable and actually talk to people on the tube. Why is it then, I wondered that quite often in the past … Read More

On the 29 March 2017 Theresa May signed the letter triggering the departure of the UK from Europe. Some are in agreement, while others not.

Nearly a decade ago when I had just started working freelance, I took on a reasonably senior role as Director of Social Media at a large PR consultancy. It was a bold move to put myself forward for it, however what I failed to realise was that now I needed to back that confidence up with actual work. I was … Read More

I came away from a wonderful, second Rise with Confidence breakfast event this week. Well done to all the amazing women who managed to get out of bed and make it there so early. It was a morning well spent, hearing Fiona Hathorn of Women on Boards inspire us. All in service of supporting as many women as possible to … Read More

Be Tuff To Be Kind

Suparna malhotraCoaching, Confidence, Leadership, Management0 Comments

Here I am, fresh out of the last installment of this part of the Tuff Leadership training program. It was packed full of learning, at times confronting, and definitely moved me (us all) out of our comfort zone. Looking through my notes this morning and I spotted a quote I had highlighted saying, ‘Be Tuff to be Kind’. If I … Read More

Mental Toughness

I’ve had the honour of finally being invited to a former client’s internal women’s networking event, and I spent half a day learning about what it takes to be mentally tough. Who better to present than Martine Wright MBE, who lost both her legs above the knees while on the Circle Line in the ghastly 7/7 bombing in London. It … Read More
