She is a global inspirational speaker and author of Speak up, Stand out and Shine and the white paper "Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives Thrive with Maximum Leadership Support."

Regina helps companies leverage their diverse talent and transform their diversity and inclusion strategy using her own signature methodology.

In today’s conversation, Regina shares her own story of self-growth and overcoming obstacles to be able to speak up, stand out and shine, including how she overcame extreme shyness as a child growing up in a small village, and how she endured a painful experience with a former business partner that lead to her having to start from scratch in a new country. In fact, Regina has reinvented herself several times and describes the benefits and lessons she has learned that guide her today in helping women transform their lives.

We also explore diversity and inclusion and Regina provides insight into her mission to help more women reach the top of organizations and what you can do to further your career and, as a leader, make the most of your team’s potential.
