I have been travelling around New Zealand over the last few weeks and was really surprised as I have had so many wonderful women approach me saying they have heard the Giant Sisters podcasts and love hearing from our phenomenal women!
One woman said "it is great to hear different phenomenal women's life and career journey's which are all so varied and true to each woman".
Another comment was that "it is fantastic to hear a woman's perspective for a change" which I 100% agree with and it one of the reasons that I started the Giant Sisters podcast series.
Giant Sisters truly has a life and energy of it's own. I have had requests to hold live Giant Sisters interviews on stage for the 125th Suffrage celebration events, which I am doing in August. Another example that I heard about this week when I met a woman who told me she had listened to all the podcasts and was at a community event recently and saw one of the Giant Sisters, I had interviewed, she approached her and introduced herself and they are now connected and working together in their local community! That is magical news to hear.
We are living in transformational times and while every one is busy talking about Business and Digital transformation, I believe the biggest transformation is us, as people, women and men, acknowledging that the world needs a more holistic, balanced approach for life, how we live, heal, work, create, invent and how we treat each other and the planet. Before we can get to that place many of us are facing challenges we need to rise to, taking the road less travelled by, processing pain, accepting our greatness and transforming.
Every phenomenal woman I interview and every phenomenal woman that listens to a podcast is a Giant Sister. Women learn from each other and gain strength from their shared experiences. Giant Sisters we are all fabulous works in progress, transforming ourselves, our lives, families, communities and worlds. Thank you.

It has been a fast start for the team at Giant Sisters since we launched on March 8 2018.
We have recorded 19 stories, as podcasts, with phenomenal women so far with many more scheduled! Again, if you know of a phenomenal woman would we should talk with, please let us know.
The response to Giant Sisters, the idea of collecting, and sharing women's stories has been wonderful, magical even. It feels like we have created the space for people to talk, listen, learn, share, connect and more.

Giant Sisters celebrates and shares phenomenal women's voices and stories in their own words. Throughout history most women's and girls stories were not documented and saved. Even great achievements, discoveries, inventions, and acts of bravery have been omitted from our recorded history. No More.
