Podcast: My LinkedIn Journey & How LinkedIn Can Help Your Career

After guest speaking at a business women’s breakfast, I was approached by Natalie Hughes to be interviewed on Miss Independent Podcast, a series of conversations Natalie has with successful women who share their career and business stories, work experiences, personal insights and aspirations. Natalie and I were already connected on LinkedIn and our paths had crossed a number of times.

Natalie is the founder of Miss Independent and an experienced corporate executive, business growth strategist and non executive director.

As a born and raised Aussie girl with a passion to see women playing big in the world, she’s created Miss Independent to help mentor and inspire women to be the best version of themself.

Through the Miss Independent podcast, blog and mentor programs, Natalie helps turn women’s ambition into action.
