PRESENTER- Kerryn Gamble

Kerryn Gamble is the Author of ‘UNSTOPPABLE – the professional woman’s guide to purpose, power & prosperity’ and Founder of Woman of Worth.

Kerryn is an expert in self-confidence and self-leadership, providing strategy and delivery, of development programs for women. Best known for her impactful and effective strategies for transforming self-doubt, message clarity and physical movement, Kerryn transforms professional women from invisible to influential.

In her role as Vice President of Professional Speakers Australia (VIC/TAS), Kerryn shares her passion and expertise for developing clear, well-articulated messages to assist women communicate with clarity, credibility and clout.

Despite being highly capable and qualified, Kerryn has identified three challenges experienced by many professional women. These are:

1 - UNDERVALUE They doubt themselves and the value of what they offer

2 - UNDERWHELM Their written and spoken message lack impact

3 - UNDERMINE They’re uncomfortable with self-promotion and what others think, which shows up in their physical movement and gestures.

To solve these problems, Kerryn addresses 6-key areas needed for influential communication through her ESTEEMTM Method.

Kerryn believes many challenges professional women face, stem from low self-worth. Whilst the data supports the value of women in business, some women find it challenging to articulate the value they bring to what they do, or question whether they're enough.

To realise her vision of a world where women communicate with conviction and lead by example, Kerryn closes the confidence and achievement gap of female managers, to develop leadership potential of female talent.
