Ep #223: Speaking Your Brand with Carol Cox

In the world of leadership, your voice is your signature—it’s how you leave your mark.

But let’s face it:

Whether it’s commanding a room, striking up a conversation with your CEO, or stepping into the spotlight, for many women leaders, these scenarios aren’t just challenging—they can feel like stepping onto a battlefield without armor.

How do you then, time and again, put yourself on the frontlines, microphone in hand, without the instinct to retreat?

And how do you assert your presence, your expertise, your very essence, without compromising the unapologetic, corporate badass that you are?

To unravel this, I’ve brought Carol Cox onto “Women Changing Leadership”. Carol is not only the founder and CEO of Speaking Your Brand but also a seasoned political analyst and a visionary who has reshaped the art of public speaking for women.

In this episode, she shares transformative and actionable strategies to help you amplify your voice, define your presence, and gain recognition as the outstanding executive leader you are meant to be. PLUS, you’ll also hear her coach me on my thought leadership stories in real-time. 

Let’s get into the conversation.
