Speaking and Media Appearances


An experienced speaker, Harriet can talk on a range of topics but always aims to both inspire and give practical advice. Having worked at both a successful start-up and a large, well-established organisation she is particularly keen on passing on the lessons she’s learned around changing ingrained beliefs and working practices. Described as “stand-up funny”, she always tries to bring huge amounts of energy, humour and tough-talking pragmatism to her speeches.

Topics she speaks on include: 

  • Women and the workplace. Looking at the trends around gender diversity at work, what holds women back and answering the age old question, just what do women want?
  • Building individual resilience, allowing staff to better manage change, accept new working practices and cope with increasing pressures. 
  • Changing working practices. Having spent several years writing about the future of work, Harriet knows the best ways to engage managers around culture change and how to make sure it sticks. 

Harriet has also been interviewed by various media outlets, including:
