After Office Hours with Dr. Patricia Murugami

After Office Hours with Dr. Patricia Murugami

It is said that you become more courageous by taking bold decisions.

Some of the leading companies that are admirable today have been formed from the bold decisions the founders made earlier.

From quitting well-paying jobs, taking a career shift, and so on, it takes courage to bring to life your dreams and vision.

Sustaining your vision also takes another leap of courage.

If businesses are managed without courageous leadership, then R&D programs, product pipelines, investments in emerging markets, and employees’ commitment to the company’s mission and vision will ultimately wither. 

These organizations can slip into malaise and may eventually fail, even if their leaders can move on to avoid being held accountable.

So what does it take to become a courageous leader? And what does it take to also bring up another lot of courageous leaders?

As we continue celebrating women throughout this month, join us for an after-office hours session with Dr. Patricia Murugami, founder of Breakthrough Leadership Transformation (BTL).

During the session, Dr. Patricia will walk us through her journey into entrepreneurship and how she had to quit at the peak of her career, working with some of the leading auditing firms to pursue her passion in entrepreneurship.

She will also share how a life experience got her to a point where she needed a breakthrough as she had found it difficult to find her purpose and discovered she was not alone in trying to find purpose and this would lead to the registration of Breakthrough Leadership Transformation (BLT) as a limited liability company.

This year, International Women’s Day was themed DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”, Dr. Patricia will share with us what it takes to be a woman disrupting the digital space, a space she has taken a keen interest in through her podcast: Your Next Best Self and also being a TED Fellow, having given a TED talk at TEDxIESEBarcelona on the four steps of unlocking our potential

As a firm believer of why women need to know and harness their feminine power and that humanity should all focus on becoming integrated, Dr. Patricia’s story is one of grit & courage in life, love, leadership & legacy.
