What does it take to be at the very top of your game? That’s something Octavia Goredema thinks about frequently. As the founder of Twenty Ten Agency, a media platform providing career coaching services, Octavia and her team strive to elevate career opportunities for under-represented professionals. She was also appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire by the Queen, and she is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, leading the Gender Equity Network in the United States of America. As a woman of colour, Octavia has firsthand experience with inequality in society and its emotional toll. In this episode of 2 Pages with MBS, she shares her story and how she attempts to make the world a more inclusive place through her work.  Get book links and resources at https://www.mbs.works/2-pages-podcast/
