HOW DOES IT WORK?
Available for overall event facilitation, MC support, public speaking and motivational talks.
As a Director of AI and as the founder of the social enterprise, She Flies, I speak regularly at conferences and events of up to 1,000 in person and 10k online. My talks cover technical talk tracks and motivational self-development for corporate, using live coaching techniques, to encourage listeners self-progression.
My approach creates powerful, yet intimate environments on a large scale with an empathetic but frank style, calling upon logic to address elephants in the hypothetical room we call society.
See below examples of the talks I give regularly. Each of which can be tailored.
If your event is primarily aimed at Women in Sport, Business or Tech, please get in touch regardless of your budget.
This list is not exhaustive, please reach out to discuss your individual requirements.
BE A UNICORN AMONGTS A FLOCK OF PIGEONS
Motivational Talk: 60 min
In today’s complex world, normal will not cut it. Being bold and embracing different presents a unique strength to challenge the way things are done. With more focus on technology than ever, new perspectives on leveraging it are needed to help companies thrive. Diverse backgrounds and interests enrich a company’s culture and bring new thinking to the table on how to approach challenges and drive innovation.
But how do we find the strength to be different? Josie looks away from the familiarity of the tech and business sector to another field that requires quick thinking, resilience, and power – Extreme Sports.
In this session, Josie will explain what she’s gained from straddling her role as a Data & AI Director at Avanade and recognised leader in Extreme Sports, while sharing other inspirational stories and unique approaches that will leave the listener with their 3 personal superpowers to help them find the confidence to be different.
FACING FEARS IN SPORTS AND IN LIFE
Motivational Talk: 45 min
As a supported Kitesurfer, Josie West understands how unstoppable you become when you learn to face fears in Extreme Sports. After years of teaching, she started to also understand the mountain of Women whose journeys stopped from those same fears. This talk aims to explore the common fears in Extreme Sports, Josies top tips as a Performance Coach of approaching them as Women and the direct similarities that we see in life away from sport.
This session is interactive, inspirational, backed up by science and it might just leave you with a new way of thinking.
ENVIRONMENT MATTERS: UNDERSTANDING DIVERSITY IN LEARNING
Educational Talk: 45 min
We all know there is a difference physically between genders, but what about mentally? This talk unpicks the psychological findings that outline the clear differences – and needs – between men and women. The way in which we all learn, alongside the motivations and barriers, will enable us to increase the number of female participants learning and progressing in Extreme Sports.
This session is backed up by facts and will get you really thinking about the beautiful difference, rather than failures, between the sexes.
