Harriet started her career in journalism, writing for B2B magazines and websites before joining the Guardian as first the career's editor and later the editor of its Women in Leadership section. She was part of the digital transformation team there and has since worked with numerous brands to help them define their digital content strategy. She trained as a coach in 2016 and used her knowledge about gender diversity to help organizations define their female leadership programmes and create robust DEI policies. Harriet still writes about diversity, women and the future of work for various publications including The Financial Times, The Telegraph and The Times. She has a column in Psychologies magazine and has previously hosted a national radio show and a top ten podcast. She has given two TED talks and published two books, the first on leadership lessons and the second on building a career while hybrid working.
Harriet is an engaging speaker and facilitator who brings a lot of energy and confidence to a room. Attendees describe her sessions as "stand-up funny" and "inspiring and challenging". She believes in the importance of holding a space which asks workshop groups to stretch out of their comfort zones but also which provides care and support as they do. As a coach, she sees her role as being a challenging cheerleader, helping people uncover what they really want from their careers and their lives and making a plan for going after this. Her experience working with large organisations helps her provide strategic advice to leaders, while her background in communication means she is an expert at helping you create the right message for the right audience.
