Your voice matters!
However, have you ever had the courage to speak up unapologetically?
Hi, I'm Tulia Lopes, communication architect, international speaker and author of Leading in High Heels.
For the past decade I've been helping professionals to "find their voice" so they can express themselves with clarity and confidence.
Since 2014 I've been supporting women to speak up.
In this podcast my guests and I will share stories of how much it takes to be Brave, Bold and Brilliant.
# 23 - It is not WHAT you say, it is HOW you say it (and to WHOM) by Tulia Lopes
In this episode, I (Tulia) go "solo" to talk about a topic that has become one of her signature talks.
This is a big challenge for many. And it will always be because even when you are aware about the way you communicate and how effectively you manage to get your message across, there will be times when you will fail, and you might wonder why...
Well, the primarily reason, in most cases is one, not knowing enough about your audience, therefore, not crafting your message in a way, in a language, that is relevant to them.
And you might ask: "how hard could that be?"
And my answer will be, "knowing your audience and speaking in their language is easier said than done." However, the good news is, it can be learned.
Saying no more, I want to share with you my views on that topic in podcast episode.
I hope you enjoy it and learn from it. And, get back to me and share your views. I want to learn from you too.

It is said that "opportunities don't appear at our door. We have to be at the door and then grab them when they pass by..."
That is exactly what Rocio did. From being in an unhappy professional situation, instead of going into depression she decided to find ways to move forward. Diversity and Inclusion was at the core of her heart, and she decided to go towards that direction. The rewards were more than she could even imagine, including international recognition for her achievements.
Rocio is part of Fujitsu Global, based in Barcelona. She is known for her gift when dealing with people. She is a competitive person, motivated and always in search of self-improvement.

Do you agree?
My guest in the upcoming Brave, Bold & Brilliant podcast, Mafalda Pereira, is Portuguese, living in the beautiful city of Porto, and describes herself as an entrepreneur, and both a mentor and an avid learner.

#0018 - Mind the Gap! A talk about menopause with Pat Duckworth
Can you talk about Menopause? Are you experiencing it? What do you know about it? 🤨
There are several “myths" around the topic of menopause which jeopardise women’s role as leaders in the workplace, and categorise them as less “attractive, or capable" in our Western culture.
For instance, many women believe that when they reach menopause “that is it!”. That is the end. They are “old”, they are… “disposable”… And unfortunately, most working and social environments reinforce that.
Too bad! 🙄
My guest in this episode of Brave, Bold & Brilliant podcast, Pat Duckworth, is a Women’s Wellbeing Strategist, Author and Coach. She has published five books. Her most recent highly acclaimed book, 'Menopause Mind the Gap: The value of supporting women's wellness in the workplace', raises the awareness about the issue of menopause in the workplace and how to support employees who are experiencing symptoms.
Pat makes the subject of menopause accessible and provides practical advice for employers and employees.
Because ladies, you should all be celebrating your midlife and embracing your role of a “Crone Goddess”, the wise woman within the tribe, who has the wisdom of the years to impart.
Reach out to Pat
