This was a fantastic first session. Joanne has had an exciting career, after moving to the UK from Australia - facing redundancies and challenges in addition to being a young mother with a demanding career.
The biggest challenge, according to Joanne, was to “maintain resilience.” Resilience is a skill that stems from accepting failures, learning a lesson, and moving on from it.
Winning a BIMA100 Award 2021 has been a privilege to Joanne, and she has loved connecting with inspirational leaders in the digital industry because of it.
This achievement has also fuelled her existing passion for giving back to the community, both supporting the younger generation and championing women and minority groups in digital and technology.
