Episode 28

From Ada Lovelace Day to Every Day - Embedding DEI, Embracing Change, Innovating with Confidence with Isabelle Guis, CMO at Commvault

Published on: 13th October, 2022

With Ada Lovelace Day the inspiration for this special episode, we actually go on a journey beyond into 'the how' of embedding diversity, equity and inclusion by design, and in these ever evolving times, how to better embrace change too. To do so, I am joined by the brilliant Isabelle Guis, Chief Marketing Officer at Commvault, who has a truly fascinating personal journey to share - I am sure it will inspire many!

We cover the holistic skills that matter most today and into tomorrow including STEM and STEAM, growing through discomfort or 'feel the fear and do it anyway', mottos for professional and personal life, the power of mentoring and sponsorship and so much more, packed with real life examples.

And beyond this still, we explore the power of protection for data which alongside trust, must be the biggest currency of our times sharing security examples from Commvault and looking ahead to their Connections 2022 event on November 2nd and 3rd. This is a superb technology, learning and networking opportunity, freely available to all, that can help everyone to innovate with confidence.

Its a packed episode!
