CHERYL HARDACRE: "much-needed warmth, clarity, charm and feminine wisdom to an often cold, utilitarian IT world"
I recently witnessed Helen as a key speaker at an event for Evernote software. Helen held the floor in front of around 100 people ... the majority of them tech-savvy, accomplished men and I watched with interest the faces of the men in the audience as she spoke. She captivated them all ... the young geeks, the sleek businessmen, the savvy IT professionals. Why? Because Helen combines her extensive knowledge of the software with practical tips on how to use it for ultimate productivity without it overwhelming the user. So often you get the high-tech utilitarian explanation without the humanity, but Helen gives BOTH. And to witness these same men crowding around her at the end of the session to gain more of her wisdom said everything. It takes great strength to be a leader in your field no matter who you are, but for me it's even more exciting to see a woman take the reins in a very male-dominated field like IT. Helen, you are an inspiration: beyond a wealth of knowledge, you bring much-needed warmth, clarity, charm and feminine wisdom to an often cold, utilitarian IT world. Go Helen!
