Michelle shared her story of going behind the iron curtain visiting East Germany as a 16 year old and wanting to become a spy. Disillusioned by a CIA job fair decided to be a management consultant and worked with PwC and E&Y in Russia.
Her protagonist for her agility narrative is a caring leader that sought for the team high performance and high well being. The theme was about breaking through the iron curtain of oppressive technology that seemed to eat attention and oppressive leadership to recover from stress. The villain was largely tech that focused on stealing our attention. Her hope for the future is that we will be the masters of our tools again and that we as humans will continue to be as creative, as innovative and as magnificent as we are able to be without compromising our own well-being.
