Professor Maja combines sociology with sequins for a charismatic storytelling experience on women’s everyday obstacles with confidence.

 

Her informal, witty and energetic style of speaking educates and inspires women to get out of their comfort zones and take action! Professor Maja can customize her keynotes to your audience.

On behalf of Insurance Business, it has been an absolute privilege to partner with Professor Maja as our keynote in the 6-city fall Women in Insurance Virtual Conference Series. From our audience in London to Chicago to Toronto, Professor Maja quickly demonstrated her unique way of both relating to attendees, while also challenging them to be better with tangible steps to grow as a leader. Her powerful talk on Forget the Apologies, and Learn to Lead with Confidence set the tone for the day and is one of the best topics not only seen at the WII conference, but across our many verticals. Thank you, Professor Maja, for partnering with IB Magazine to empower and encourage women globally!

  • Why women over apologize.

  • How apologetic lingo shows up in our lives.

 Overcoming 
 imposter 
 syndrome: 
.WHY YOU ARE.
.NOT A FRAUD 

G7731.jpg

The imposter syndrome is the inability to own your successes. Have you ever felt like you don’t belong or that you’re not good enough? Imposters tend to deflect praise and minimize their accomplishments. They attribute their successes to external sources like “being lucky”. It’s been argued that women who feel like imposters lack confidence. But perhaps women DON’T lack confidence, what if their confidence is chipped away at by biases, toxic workplaces, and childhood experiences?

 

Join Professor Maja for this very popular keynote and you’ll learn:

 

  • The common fears behind the imposter syndrome and identify how it shows up in your life​.

  • How our work environments can influence and create feelings of imposterism.

  • Learn the latest research on confidence coming out of Professor Maja’s ongoing 5-year global study on women’s confidence.

  • Discuss actionable science-backed strategies on how we can grow our confidence.

Join Professor Maja and you’ll learn:

 

  • How our confidence & communication styles are influenced by likeability traps.

  • How biases chip away at women’s confidence.

  • Actionable strategies to be better allies to women at home, in their social life and at work.

 SELF-
.CONFIDENCE 

Do you doubt your skills or experiences, even ruminating over prior mistakes? Do you stay in your comfort zone, avoiding opportunities or experiences for fear that you might fail? The answer to these questions has to do with self-confidence: what is it, how do we maintain it and what are the hurdles to building it?

This keynote will dispel the myths around confidence (like women lack confidence!) and explore how both external and internal factors negatively impact women’s confidence.

Join Professor Maja and learn:

  • What self-confidence is and how we get it (Hint: It’s a skill that can be developed! Not something you’re born with).

  • How our confidence is killed at work.

  • The internal hurdles to building our self-confidence. 

  • Science-backed strategies to strengthen our confidence in both our personal and professional lives.
