I help women overcome work-related barriers and to challenge the status quo, so they can lead enriched, happy and fulfilled lives. What are these barriers? They are internal (such as lack of confidence, or self-belief) and external (such as returning to work after maternity leave, negotiating flexible work or a pay rise). I also work with businesses to help them challenge existing workplace barriers and biases, by providing training and workshops.
ISE Partners partnered with Olivia/The Women’s Vault to provide a series of seven Masterclasses to our client and candidate network. Olivia is an expert presenter with engaging and relevant and what's more, she creates a very special sense of connection and safety in her Masterclasses. Audience members feel happy to share thoughts and ask questions. We look forward to continuing our partnership.
The Women's Vault helped me "find my voice and my brand". Co-workers say I returned a different person, more confident and strong-willed. I have since been offered the dream job after nailing the interviews. I don't think I would have had the confidence before.
In my biggest career step, my interview for Partnership [of my Law Firm], I was calm, confident and able to deliver a presentation I never dreamed was possible, thanks to Olivia.
Olivia helped me realise what a 'powerhouse' I was and communicate my effectiveness to new employers, securing a role which I thought was completely out of my reach.
I’m the Founder of The Women’s Vault, a published writer and communications specialist. I’m on a mission to help more women overcome workplace barriers and help guide businesses on how best to support their employees, including with wellbeing and development, women's progression into leadership roles and working parents.
My clients are based all over the world and work at global companies including Amazon, Deloitte, the NHS, Nuffield Health and major law firms. I have delivered workshops and programmes to many companies.
My background: I was an Executive Advisor for 15 years in the banking and finance industry. In 2019, I returned to work after maternity leave to a bigger role on a compressed hours contract, and was met with many personal and professional challenges. This is what inspired me to create The Women's Vault - to take a 'combined' approach to help women stay in the workplace, despite the challenges we face, and to help businesses to support one of their most precious assets - their employees.
