Isabel is an accomplished woman in technology with a passion for knowledge sharing and continuous learning. She has been sharing her thoughts via her written and spoken words. She was born and grown up in Burma (Myanmar) and now calls Sydney, Australia home. She currently works as an Engineering Manager at a technology company in Sydney.
A few years ago, she realised that women in technology are under-represented in the media and industry and she wanted to change that. She believes that change starts with herself and therefore, she started speaking at local meet ups, events and conferences with the hope to get recognition for women in technology and in leadership positions and to inspire others to do the same. She has also given talks internationally; she gave a talk on developing for a seamless user experience at a technical conference in Dublin, Ireland and most recently, she spoke about her personal leadership model at a leader program in Silicon Valley, USA.
Topics she speaks about include web development, leadership, career development, diversity and women in technology.
Isabel brings authenticity, warmth, humor and useful insights to her talks and she customises each talk for her particular audience, whether they are students, entrepreneurs, technical groups, people managers or executives.
