Introducing this chapter’s expert.

Get to know yourself. Who are you? Introducing this chapter’s expert. Watch Debbie Wosskow, co-founder of AllBright, introduce Sonya Barlow.

Welcome to ‘get to know yourself’. In this chapter, we will be getting honest. We invite you to assess your strengths and find out where you’re creating barriers to your own success. The reason that getting to know yourself is so important and features so heavily in our book, ‘Belief Build Become: Project you: How to supercharge your career,’ is because unless you know yourself, you cannot begin the journey to career success.

The expert that we’ll be hearing from is Sonya Barlow. Sonya is an award-winning diversity business coach and motivational speaker, delivering keynotes to empower all of those around her. She focuses on young professionals in tech and has delivered TEDx Talks and more than 200 workshops.She was named as one of the most influential women in tech by Computer Weekly.

During this chapter, you’ll be working together with Sonya as she takes you through exercises that support your own self evaluation. The outcome will be a more confident you, with the skills you need to be able to own who you are and share where you are going.
