How LinkedIn has helped you in your careers or businesses:

I have just moved to a new country and LinkedIn has been invaluable at finding and building new connections in my new country. Through LinkedIn I have found new friends, received helpful advice, and built my network. I also use it a lot for research and preparation for meetings.

Tips on how to Thrive on LinkedIn:

I put out a weekly personal post/blog about my experiences in emigrating, and every time I post those I add at least another 5-6 new connections of followers. In between I share more business related posts depending on what conferences I am attending, site visits I am making. I use those to showcase the work my company does or let contacts know I will be in town and available for meetings. I try not to post more than 2-3 items a week as I don’t want readers to get bored.


What I use Linkedin for:

Personal musing, sharing stories on space, raising awareness of STEM careers, supporting fellow women in defence, aerospace and space

Number of Followers:





Who am I:

A woman who has been lucky enough to enjoy a 30 year career in Defence & Space and is passionate to encourage more young women to start in STEM careers and overcome their imposter syndrome

What I do:

Business development and awareness raising about all things space and what it already does and can do for humankind

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I’m keen to build networks of women in STEM careers, so we can celebrate and highlight each others successes, act as role models for others and encourage more women into our sector.

❝I love the comments on this post. It was the first time I experimented with being the authentic me and blended personal reflections like the menopause, with business commentary – and its a combination people seem to like. I often get verbal comments from people who read my posts, even if they haven’t interacted with them online.❞

❝It depends on how you define “successful” really. If it is in terms of “likes” then none of my posts has topped more than 200 likes – but this one probably attracted the most new connections to women in wider industry and personal comments afterwards about speaking openly about career issues – which is what I am aiming for.❞
