    EP. 176 - Ina Coveney - IT to business coach

    Teach the Geek interviews - public speaking for engineers and scientists



    Ina Coveney does a number of things. Business coach. Speaker. Podcaster.  She didn’t start off that way, though. She worked in IT for years, and left that behind to start her own business. I’m interested to learn more about her days in corporate, her transition to being a business coach, and her podcast, The Global Phenomenon Podcast.

    EP. 173 - Gayathri Shukla, what does an engineer know about storytellng?

    What does an engineer know about storytelling? Quite a bit!



    After working in the energy industry for many years, Gayathri Shukla, my latest guest, took the leap and went fulltime with her business, Campfire Kinship. Campfire Kinship offers workshops on leadership, diversity & inclusion, and wellness. Gayathri is also a speaker; her topics range from storytelling to STEAM. We chatted about her business, the motivation to leave her fulltime job to become an entrepreneur, and her speaking topics. I even learned about her first love, English, and the reason she went into Engineering instead.
