100 Women’s Voices In Business

by Meg Guiseppi on March 10, 2011

”"

March 8th was the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, first celebrated in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. In tribute, Krishna De (@KrishnaDe on Twitter), a fellow Reach Personal Branding Strategist, has compiled a free Slideshare report, 100 Voices in Business.

Reaching out for contributions from women in business across the globe, she asked us to share our best Twitter-sized tips and advice – 140 characters or less – in several categories. Some are practical, some are inspirational, all are worth taking to heart.

It was hard to select just a few juicy tidbits, but here’s a taste.

In the category Leadership and Inspiring Your Team:

#4 by Jennifer Brennan, a Communications Executive from Ireland (@jenn_bren_ on Twitter):

Be fair, honest and helpful. Always do what you feel is right. Help others, say thank you don’t forget to pay it forward.

#9 by Heather Gorringe, Managing Director at Wiggly Wigglers in the UK (@wiggled on Twitter):

Remember – success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

#22 by Gillian Meussig, President and Co-Founder of SEOmoz.org in the U.S. (@SEOmom on Twitter):

Always remember to bring your personal values to the corporate table.

In the category Networking and Building Effective Relationships:

#28 by Toby Bloomberg, President of Divamarketing Blog in the U.S. (@tobydiva on Twitter):

The secret to building relationships with women is embarrassingly simple. Listen. Hear. Ask. Respond. Chocolate is always good too!

#32 by Megan Fitzgerald, Expat Coach at Career By Choice in Italy (@expatcoachmegan on Twitter):

Maximise enjoyment and success by using your values to guide your choice of clients, partners, projects, teams and people in your network

In the category Productivity and Time Management:

#43 by Jennifer Britton, President of Potentials Realized in Canada (@jennbritton on Twitter):

Keep your vision in front of you, your eyes on your goals. One step a day consistently over time leads to results. Celebrate often

My contribution, #47 (@MegGuiseppi on Twitter):

Resist the urge to check emails and social media first thing each day. Put in 2-3 solid hours of beneficial work before getting sucked in.

In the category Professional Development:

#68 by Joanna Penn, Author, Speaker and Blogger at The Creative Penn in Australia (@thecreativepenn on Twitter):

Identify your passion. Research how other people are making income in it. Learn fast – Try it out – Fail fast – Persist – Learn more – Share

#75 by Viveka von Rosen, CEO and Founder of Linked Into Business in the U.S. (@linkedinexpert on Twitter):

Stop playing small. No more “Little old me” syndrome. We have the tools to claim our voices and our genius. So let’s do it!

In the category Work Life Balance:

#81 by Grainne Byrne, PR Consultant at GBC PR in Ireland (@grainnebyrne on Twitter):

Worried? Ask yourself will it matter in a week, a month or a year? Only the last one needs attention

And maybe my favorite, #95 by Anette ni-Dhathlaoi, Marketing Manager at ESB in Ireland (@nettyni on Twitter):

Learn 10 different ways to say no, without ever saying ‘No’

Thanks so much for commenting, Megan.

I love that Krishna put together this inspiring and helpful presentation, and I love your contribution. I agree, they all were excellent. I just selected a few so people would get the idea, and hopefully read all of them.

Ciao!
Meg

Hi Meg,

Thanks so much for selecting my contribution to highlight. I do believe that the more we align everything we do with our values the more ease and success we’ll have.

There were so many great contributions – it would be hard to choose the best!

My best,
Megan
