Brian Hillery joins the Fifty Faces Podcast as guest speaker

Fifty Faces Podcast | Brian Hillery | EisnerAmper Ireland

Brian Hillery, Partner and Head of Coaching at EisnerAmper Ireland, was delighted to join Aoifinn Devitt on the Fifty Faces Breakout Room Podcast in collaboration with GAIN – Girls Are Investors on building self-confidence in a changing world.

Brian joined Aoifinn and fellow panellists Executive Coach, Kathryn Heslin, and Executive Search Expert, Kate Grussing to discuss a popular narrative that women are less confident than men and whether this is borne out in the data. Their discussion reveals that lack of self-confidence can be an issue for both women and men at every level in their professions and that it can ebb and flow throughout our careers.

Brian and Kathryn, as Executive Coaches, discuss what having self-confidence really means, how it relates to the stories we tell ourselves, and how developing action plans and reframing events can help to build it. Kate shares how lack of self- confidence manifests at the job search stage, how different candidates can have different assessments of their own competence and how searching for case studies of achievements can be empowering in shaping an employment profile.

The panellists also discuss the benefits of building support circles and identifying mentors in advance of career moves or important milestones in addition to actions listeners can take in their daily lives in order to boost their confidence.

The Fifty Faces Podcast series is hosted by Aoifinn Devitt, Head of Investment – Ireland at Federated Hermes International, and showcases the diversity and richness of the investment world through showcasing inspiring investors and their stories.

The podcast is available on Spotify and Podomatic – please see links below:
