-Understand Impostor Syndrome and its effects on high-achieving professionals.

Featured Speaker(s)

As an executive coach with a proven track record of success in the high-tech industry, Kim Meninger empowers individuals and organizations to reach their full leadership potential. While she serves leaders at all levels and across a broad range of functional roles and industries, she has a special interest in partnering with women and minorities in the high-tech industry to help them become more confident, visible and influential leaders.

Throughout her career, Kim has observed that women and minorities are particularly vulnerable to confidence issues and self-doubt, which can keep them from seeking high-profile projects, forging relationships with senior level influencers, strategically promoting their efforts, etc., all of which serve to hold them back and further erode their confidence. Kim helps these individuals to recognize and embrace their strengths, as well as develop the confidence and strategies needed to advance their careers.

Prior to coaching, Kim managed strategic partnerships at EMC Corporation and Monster Worldwide. Kim has a BA in psychology and an MBA from Boston College. She is an ICF-certified and CCE Board Certified Coach with certifications in Executive and Leadership Development Coaching.
