Motivation and Communication Coach

We start with Me: living your values to create a brave new world


When hearing about motivation, people often think about behaviors that motivates them. However, research shows that is not behaviors that drives us, but values. This is one of the reasons why companies are focusing now on company values. A defined set of values, creates a company culture with a precise set of behaviors. But by doing so, companies don't realise they are creating clones. Creativity and innovation are driven by diversity, not by uniformity. The difference between coherence and alignement is the key here. In this talk we will explore your values, link them to your behavior… read more

Online violence against women and digital transformation


The absent of women in different tech areas is making them invisible in the new reality that development is creating. As it happened before, when women couldn't vote or go to school, if the voice of the half of the humanity is not being heard, then the discrimination will arise stronger with the current tools. In this talk I would highlight how normalized is the online violence against women in social media and how important is to create trust and safe environments to allow women to grow into the technical paths but also for the diversity of data, for the good of the society and the… read more

Emerging trends from today's rapidly changing world, and how they impact the products we build for tomorrow

Bring the harmony with Domain-driven design (DDD)


Building a big enterprise project can be quite a challenge, especially when the wrong direction has been taken from the very beginning. The reasons why projects might fail can be various. Amongst the most frequent ones lack of communication and engineers failing to understand how problems need to be solved can be listed. As a result - the written code is difficult to adjust and refactor, tasks are not finished on time and in general the code does not reflect what it was meant to.

In “Domain Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software” written by Eric Evans… read more

Female Mobility, New Ideas for Everyone


People that pursue multiple purposes in life, have different needs and behaviors when it comes to transportation. Mobility is not gender neutral, and may have a male bias. Women's mobility is more multi-modal and intermodal than men’s.

STRIKING BALANCE AS A CAREER WIFE, MUM, COACH AND A SOFTWARE DEVELOPER


My goal is to help women in technology build their career while they evolve with satisfaction. Technology is revolving, women can be part of the circle even with their kids, they can build their career in technology and stand out too. Every 8 women out of 10 women give up daily because they are overwhelmed, perhaps not accepted or they can not find the solution to that projects. There are easy steps to strike that balance and stay on top.
