“For many years, I've led at the intersection of a VC-backed growth company and today as COO of Flatiron School (a WeWork company). In recent years, I've watched as the cultural conversation on women in tech and corporate America became uglier and uglier. I deeply felt the need to step forward to engage a broader audience of upcoming leaders not only on these topics, but as a strong, positive female leader across many topics. But, I realized I didn't have the confidence in my public speaking that I had in just about every other area of my life. Minna's work has been a narrative arc of exploration from the mental habits I didn't know I had and needed to break, simple exercises to warm up and a beautiful habit of practice and iteration. She's helped me discover that my sense of perfection was my limitation and playfulness is not only my joy in public speaking, but my secret sauce."
K. Riordan, COO Flatiron School
